> It may take longer to load, but I can have 100+ GIFs playing at once with no impact to my CPU.

I don't know what you're talking about really... I was just using Google Slides today and both Firefox and Chrome went to 250% CPU usage, only because there was one slide with a 5 seconds full screen recording GIF. I begged to the person who added it to turn that to a video.

Yep, browsing pages laden with too many GIFs is my favorite way to have a hot laptop that sounds like it's getting ready to lift off and get my low battery warning to pop up.

In my experience that's a google slides problem, not a gif problem.

Google problem not gif problem, sites like knowyourmeme embed 10 gifs in a page routinely with no issues(apart from the loading time)
