Google Adds GIF Filter To Image Search

The internet dies from happiness.
See, wouldn't this JPEG be better as a GIF?

Simply click on the 'search tools' button below the search box and select 'animated' from the 'any type' drop down menu. 

In what is another new feature, you can also select 'transparent' under the colour filter, which is great for when you are procrastinating at work and want to quickly create quality art such as this:
