public domain? really???
AFAIK you still had to pay royalties for programs creating GIF files (reading was free). If you could provide a link to some information about this, I'd appreciate it Smile

Afterall, it's not GIF that's patented, it's the LZW algorithm used in GIF, and a couple of general purpose packers.. it's a LZ78 derivative.

GIF is NOT Public Domain, it contains patented algorithms like GuyveR800 said. It is, however, free for on a website (royalties have to be paid when you make a GIF encoder, that's why it is missing in many open source projects).

Whether or not PNG is better than GIF when it comes to compression, depends on the pictures used. Sometimes PNG is smaller than GIF, sometimes it's the other way around.

Still a few countries to go...
However, maybe this is the time for a GIF04a? Tongue (Support for non-palettized images would be nice Big smile )
