Technical side - files can have both an extension and a "MIME type" - in this image case, the file is:Dunno. Tinypic url's are always .jpg :undecided: but try to save it and it's .jpg.gif lol
MIME type: image/gif
even though the extension is sent as .jpg - hence the browser uses the GIF "handler" to display the image, not the JPG "handler". When downloading, some (all?) browsers will use the MIME type to decide what extension to save the file as - similarly, some download scripts can be ".php" files but still handled normally.
On topic, I think they're going to find it challenging to hit WL's price when you remember the accessories they include, and all companies will struggle to meet quality and power standards that we're used to on here. Personally, I adore the WL hosts, but they aren't worth the potential risks I feel I might be taking when buying from WL. As for the other Chinese companies, I haven't ever been blown away with their presentation - but what they offer certainly isn't bad.
