A lot of debate over how it's pronounced. I used to say "Jif" like the peanut butter, but some nerds told me it was pronounced "Gif". But recently I did some research, and apparently it's pronounced "Jif".

How do you guys pronounce it?

I've always said GIF, and pretty much all of my friends say GIF.. My Web Dev prof has been saying JIF this whole semester but it just won't stick with me x_x

Yeah I get your point but.. There's also the word "Gift" and GIF is very close to Gift so I just stick with how I pronounce Gift.. just drop the T LOL.

If it's Jiphy, I'm gonna be reminded of Jiffy Lube.. xD

Usually when the letter I follows the letter G, the G sounds like J.
