I didn't know that. That's great, if it's true.

Another thing to consider: one of the important benefits of the GIF file 
format (transparency) is also part of the PNG format. PNG also supports 
24-bit color, while GIF supports a measly 8-bit maximum (paletted) color 
depth.

I do not believe that standard PNG supports animations, though.
