I could give less than a **** if the developers of the .gif format say it's JIF, **** them, they can't change rules of the language. In abbreviations, it should take on the hard G sound from Graphic; GIF. End of story.

its pronounced GIF, reason to this is that GIF stands for Graphic Interchange Format. its not a word.

I'm still confused on pronouncing it. Why does a G become a J?

The "G" stands for "graphics"

I will never call it "Jiff"

NATO
North Atlantic Treaty Organization
The "O" is pronounced with the "r" to create "Or", but we pronounce it as an "o" in NATO.
just proof that the components of an acronym are irrelevant to its pronunciation.

(CNN) -- We can't settle iPhone vs. Android or "Star Wars" vs. "Star Trek" for you. But another long-running geek debate was put to rest Tuesday night.
Those short, animated loops that have captivated the Web for decades? They're pronounced like a brand of peanut butter.
Steve Wilhite created the Graphics Interchange Format, or GIF, while working for Compuserve in 1987. On Tuesday, he received a Webby Award for it and delivered his five-word acceptance speech (that's all the Webbys allow) by flashing a GIF on the big screens at the Cipriani Wall Street in New York.
And, in a flash, it all became clear:
"It's pronounced JIF, not GIF."

If he had come out straight away, sure. But he waited way too long, people had already started calling it GIF. Sucks for him, I guess.

The pronunciation of .gif is, according to the creator of the .gif file, "jif". The creator of the gif is also a ******* idiot. .gif literally stands for "Graphics Change Format". Just because you create something that's abbreviated doesn't mean you can change the sound of a word entirely. What I'm saying is, a bunch of ******* net-nazis My special name for internet nazis think that since the creator says how they want it to be pronounced, it should be pronounced that way. It shouldn't. It should be pronounced like the English language tells us to say it. If i had a wierd wording or if you have any more questions, ask me.
