Pre-evolution GIF Speed Modifier v1.0 
Current: GIF Controller v2.1
Evolution: ???

List of features:

:bulletblack: Load any animated gif, just paste the URL to the image on the bottom left field. (when "Instant loading" is checked, the gif will start loading immediately after pasting the url).
:bulletblack: Move the gif around by clicking and dragging.
:bulletblack: Zoom in/out with the mouse wheel or the magnifier buttons.
:bulletblack: Reset its position/zoom using the button between the magnifiers.
:bulletblack: Change the framerate of the animation using the slider on the bottom right (you can also write the fps manually, it supports framerates with decimal numbers). 
:bulletblack: Navigate through the frames using the slider on the left.
:bulletblack: Pause and resume the gif at any time using the pause/resume button in the bottom.
:bulletblack: Save the current frame as a full quality png image using the "SAVE Frame" button.


Tumblr GIFs Fix: To load any gif from Tumblr, check the image url, if it starts with "https" delete the "s" and it should work. Automatically fixes the url on V2.1

Problems found so far:

1. The instant loading works only when using Ctrl+V, not when right click and pasting.
2. When using the mouse wheel to zoom in/out, the deviation page also scrolls (as expected lol). Temporary solution: click the download button to view the swf in fullscreen.
3. It gets stuck on "Loading Gif..." on urls some websites. v2.1: Displays the reason of the problem.

Possible features for the next version:

1. Load and control 2 gifs at once.
2. Show recently loaded gif urls.
3. Load a list of gif urls from a webpage.
4. Show gif loading progress (for larger files or slow connections). Added on V2.1
5. Play animation backwards.
6. (suggestions?)

Finally! This took a while to code and it's getting more and more complex @_@ But it works much better than before! :D This can be a very powerful tool if you know how to use it :meow: Try loading Patakk's GIF animations, he has very high quality gifs, and they look awesome X33 It should work with most of the gif animations on deviantart too, so check the gifs of your favorite artists, play around with it and let me know what you think, all the feedback is welcome and will be considered for the third evolution (:
