Mee.nu seems to support animated .PNGs.
I'm not sure how much I'll use this. i can't make them, few browsers support them and they tend to be hideously large.
However if you have Firefox or another compatible browser you can look below the fold and perhaps be offended.
I don't think there's anything to support. They're just files, as far as the server is concerned.
IE10 doesn't support them, however.

Chrome doesn't animate them either.

When I said '"Animated png" isn't really a thing' I meant as opposed to .mng files...
I'm confused. So is this an .mng file then?
'cause I don't want one of those.

file extension say's it's a gif, but you knew that. I didn't examine the bytes.
MNG was designed to be an animation extension to the PNG format, but it never caught on. I suppose I was being pedantic. FWIW, those images don't animate in Chrome, either.
Siergen, gif is IIRC limited to 256 colors; PNGs can support true colors, so an image with a large palette could easily dwarf the size of a similar GIF.
