Could it be just because we've got our monitors set to different gammas? Here's a frame from the animated gif, which still looks fine to me: https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/oaNDcnogej-bbrArcXuzK9...

Does this look dithered to anyone?

This one looks good to me. Animated gif, on the other hand, does look dithered on its background. Ubuntu 12.04, Chromium 18.0.1025.168.

This one looks perfectly fine to me. Gamma 2.2 (Mountain Lion default).

OK. Well I guess this supports the original poster's motivation, that animated GIFs can't be relied on.
