Ridiculous is hardly the word for it. It seems like we're dealing with the mentality of Dogville here.
My question: what other features would anyone throw into a simple GIF-making program without bloating it up into another MS Office? Perhaps you're expecting a full animator suite? What, updates? Do you need a total rework for a '90s file format? Well you got it. It's called SWF. Deal with that.
That being said, this program does everything you'd expect a GIF maker would do. It neither falls short, nor does it exceed. Nor does it need to. And it absolutely works on OS X, with the same pop-up drawer. Except the drawer doesn't close with Cmd-T, now that's a strike against them!
