On websites, inside of emails, Twitter feeds and other apps,&nbsp;they are pretty much everywhere. While it is, for the most part, as easy as just sliding over to Google Images or some other site to scoop up a hilarious moving picture to send your friends one in an email, it has now gotten even easier for Gmail users.</p> <p>Google&rsquo;s browser extension system allows for developers to bring us all sorts of interesting add-ons to the apps we use everyday. Some of which you are likely already using,&nbsp;others have the biggest tech companies <a href="https://www.techspot.com/news/59609-amazon-google-microsoft-all-reportedly-pay-circumvent-adblock.html">forking over cash</a> just to avoid them.&nbsp;</p> <p>The Giphy for Gmail Chrome extension <a href="http://gizmodo.com/easily-add-gifs-to-your-gmail-with-this-slick-chrome-ex-1703614653">integrates</a> a GIF search engine directly into your Gmail compose window. Along the bottom of the typical new email window, beside the Send button, you&rsquo;ll find a handy Gliphy icon to access the&nbsp;search engine after installing the Chrome extension.</p> <p>Head over to the Chrome Web Store and <a href="https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/giphy-for-gmail/andgibkjiikabclfdkecpmdkfanpdapf">grab the extension for yourself</a>. Then you can send a ridiculous GIFs in all your emails (please don&rsquo;t) even easier than before.</p><p><a rel='alternate' href='https://www.techspot.com/news/60638-here-how-add-gif-search-engine-directly-inside.html' target='_blank'>Permalink to story.</a></p><p class='permalink'><a rel='alternate' href='https://www.techspot.com/news/60638-here-how-add-gif-search-engine-directly-inside.html'>https://www.techspot.com/news/60638-here-how-add-gif-search-engine-directly-inside.html</a></p>[/parsehtml]
