Indeed, the json file is quite interesting.

Can anyone try it in IE? I don't have Parallels on my mac yet.

I tried it in IE8 ... doesn't work.

Pro tip: Download VirtualBox and use the VM images here:-

Albeit, it works fine on iOS but apparently due to base64 usage battery life is an issue:-

I don't see a problem using this if you have a sequence that lasts around ~5 seconds. Surely this is more stable than using gifs.

can I install other things on those VM's, like firefox and chrome, or does somehow the windows VM just limit you to an IE icon or something?

Yep just installed Chrome. The only problemo is you have 30 day trial, so you have to trash the instance and import a new one. Or if you're one of these barbaric types of people that still knows how to use this diabolic piece of operating systems you can revert the date to something in the past (before the trial expires). I think that was a bypass mechanisms from back in the day to bootleg this monstrosity.
