Starting today, there’s an easier way to unearth those gems: when you do an image search, click on “Search tools” below the search box, then select “Animated” under the “Any type” dropdown box.Google Makes Finding Animated Images Search Easier [plus.google.com]

It's an interesting chance to see an algo with sparse results stretching to satisfy a query (at least on anything but very general searches).

In many cases, the results are almost a trip back in time. Maybe this will revive animated gifs as a genre. Perhaps we'll see a resurgence of the <blink> tag too. ;)
