SuperGIF is a great tool. An image which is optimized with SuperGIF is usually smaller, than the same image saved as PNG and then opimized with a PNG compressor. That's the reason why I still use GIF images and SuperGIF a lot.

Please be so kind and release an intel version of SuperGIF.
That would be great !

It would be great if there would be a version for MacOS X. Even a command line only tool would be great.

Seems very cool. A handy utility since us webdevs are still dealing with GIFs (thanks for not supporting the superior PNG in IE, M$).

$29 seems a bit pricey it does do a good job. A simple test with a 640x453 1MB timelapse GIF drag/dropped with the default settings yielded a 622KB GIF of comparable (though definitely degraged) quality. Although not scientific -- for comparison: in Adobe ImageReady, I had to lessen the quality on the original even further just to get it to 850KB.

The archive includes a carbonized OS X app and a native classic app. Would be much better (and maybe worth the extra bucks) if it was a native OS X app.

Carbon *is* native in Mac OS X. Don't forget that QuickTime, the Finder, and several other important things in Mac OS X are written in Carbon.

Unfortunately, no -- I assure you that GIFs are quite still the present state of affairs. And you can thank Microsoft for that.

Until they [MS] get off their ass and start supporting PNG in their POS web browser (that unfortunately owns more than half the browser marketshare), web developers like myself are still forced to use GIFs when we need transparency and 100% cross-browser compatibility.

While $30 for a GIF compression tool does seem silly, your seemingly misinformed post seems even moreso.

Internet Explorer seem to open .png files just fine. Version 6 for Windows that is. And it's that version what has the big user share you talk about.
Internet Explorer for the Mac can't handle .png files, but the amount of people using that browser on the Mac these days can't be that many.
