- GFYCat. Ultra cool .gfy hosting service. Unlimited, free. I tried uploading a gif (weird URL, I know) and it successfully convert 10M .gif size into 798K Gfy, which promise to save 44M bandwidth. Impressive. However, it’s still troublesome to embed/post to social sites like Tumblr or Pinterest as those major social sites hasn’t fully embrace the format. Tried to embed it into this WordPress site and I found it troublesome as I cannot set the size. But it’s a promising format nevertheless.
