Gifs can range from being 90% to a 100% larger file sizes. So understandably when it comes to bandwidth they can be stressful especially when you consider there might a page filled to the brim with them , such as our TLS gif thread .

Gfycats actual site actually notes the amount of bandwidth saved for instance :

http://gfycat.com/CircularBothDassie?tagname=funny

this in its original gif form was 23mb , and turning it into a gfycat made it 2mb with minimal quality loss.



tl;dr it loads faster.

edit:

hmm interestingly enough when you copy and paste the gfyca page which shows the stats , it just leads you to the embeded page without the stats =/

Well none the less if you want some examples it's as easy as going to gfycat.com and clicking any of the top uploads to see their stats/bandwidth saved.
