GIFs vs. JPEGs

What is the difference between GIFs and JPEGs and when would you use either in Web development?

GIFs are seen most often on Web sites. They are usually used to display drawings, diagrams, and other less-than photo-quality images. GIFs are also used to show simple animations. GIF files are relatively small as compared to other image file types. JPEG files are often used to display photo-quality pictures.
