There were some sites that would let you hit "play" before showing a gif, I think that's a better approach, as long as you can pause them after. That Atom example is really bad on the eyes. Of course I can always hit "ESC" to force all gifs on one page to stop, but that's just forcing that on the page. I like the option to pause and unpause gifs. I guess that's why gifs to video became a thing. Never knew about gif to video back to gif though.
