Personally, I really hate animated images.  I told Firefox to only show 
me the first frame of any animated image, and to me that has become the 
reason I won't use another browser.  It really bothers me to have 
things constantly moving when I'm trying to read the text next to them.

I opened up another browser and checked out macromates.  I can see how 
it might be useful to show animated images when you're trying to show 
text-folding, or other similar things, I just still don't like it.  I'd 
much prefer a "before" and "after" image to show what's happening.
