Quick Reference

A primitive technology used to provide animations, particularly on Web sites. It consists of sequentially displaying a series of GIF graphics which differ only slightly from each other to give the impression of movement. The technology is essentially an electronic version of the flick books which children use to produce simple animations, where each page of the book contains a slightly different image.
