This extension allows you to stop annoying gifs in the current page

Chrome extension which tries to pause the gifs that nag you. I found it useful when I am reading a document which contains some funny GIFs. By the way, authors: what about not using gifs inside a documents which is supposed to be read? To pause the GIF(s) you can use one of these options: - Use the contextual menu on a gif and select "Pause animation" - Use the contextual menu anywhere in the page except on a gif a select "Pause all animations" - Press the esc key and then click on the target GIF - Press the esc key _twice_ to pause all GIFs in the document Click on a paused gif to un-pause the animation. The extension is open source and you can get it on Github (star it, if you like it!)

Does stop the gifs. Does not pause them - rolls back to the first frame instead. Make sure You reload the page You want to pause the gifs on, after installing it.

I'm not sure what it does, but it didn't let me pause any GIFs. It also downloaded something to my computer? Which is not something I've seen other browser extensions do? Not cool.
