Although the webbrowser control is commonly used to play animated gif's in programs it is not really a good solution, it is a top-heavy control and can add upwards of 20Mb memory overhead to your application. There are many other controls designed just for playing animated gif's, a simple google search for:

Animated Gif Control

will give you some idea:

iHas such a control that is just one "freeware" option.
