Leave animated gifs as animated
Animated gif files are basically multiple gifs files displayed in a certain order.
When sending them through PunyPNG, you'll usually see a HUGE decrease in filesize, but that's because only 1 of the files that make up the animations remain.
While PNG is indeed a better format, Animated PNG files are as good as not supported.
I used to use smush.it for animated GIF files, but their upload feature is gone.
In the documentation, I find this: http://www.lcdf.org/gifsicle/
That being the program they used for it.
PNG might be a fantastic filetype, but untill animation with PNG is supported, the entire world will keep using animated GIFs. And the smaller they are, the better.
