Can you give a download link please? My google searches result in gifs shared on blogs, not the software.
Someone missed the joke. Cog's post was a gif in a gif.
I use Photoshop CC to make my gifs (you need a minimum of at least CS Extended, but all CC editions also have it now).
It has a ton of quality settings/options, but still, the trick with gifs is more movement and more color = larger size. So if your gifs are huge, you're probably having too much pixel movement, or too many colors.
EDIT: Case in point..
this huge one is only 2.2mb
, because there arent many colors and a majority of the pixels dont change often:
this one on the other hand is shorter, but full of colors and tons of moving pixels.. clocking in at 16mb!
