Lifehacker recommended a Google Chrome extension that “pauses” gifs. So, all the gifs on your dash turn into still pics until you click on them. A bit of warning: if you un-pause, you can’t re-pause, unless you refresh. Otherwise, it seems to be working really well!
I just installed it and it works exactly like she said.
You can’t re-pause, but it does stop them until you click.
THIS IS A GORGEOUS THING.
