No, I was talking about locally. Someone saves the image locally in Windows
or on the Mac or on Linux and they won't be able to just double-click on the file
in their file managing program and have it load in the image viewer set for GIF.
They'd either have to set its MIME type individually if their OS permitted that or
rename it to give it a .gif file extension.
