Now You Can Search for Animated GIFs with This New Search Engine

By February 8, 2013

Follow me on:

Animated GIFs are too much fun. We seriously can't get enough. For this reason, somebody decided to make a search engine completely dedicated to finding animated GIF images by keywords or tags. It's called Giphy.

It offers at least another mediocre option for people who really need to find a specific GIF image. Most people looking for specific GIFs have to resort to Google Image search, Tumblr tag search or the /r/gifs/ subreddit.

Despite its lack of content right now, Giphy looks like a search engine with real potential. The site had apparently attracted more than 30,000 visitors just over its first weekend after it launched.

Speaking of GIFs, you may want to check out BuzzFeed's Surviving Winter Storm Nemo feature if you're in the path of today's wicked blizzard heading for the Northeast.

Stay safe, folks. Don't get hit by a snowplow. Stay home and look at funny GIFs instead.
