Reddit users' favorite image host knows its market. On Wednesday, the popular image hosting site Imgur launched a meme generator aimed straight at taking over as Reddit users' go-to creation service. All of your favorite (and least favorite) memes are preloaded into the new generator, and a built-in gallery collects all of the most popular memes created that day on Imgur itself. While the web is hardly short on meme builders, Imgur's service comes at a timely juncture. The frequently used generator Quickmeme was banned from Reddit earlier this week following allegations that it had employed bots to vote images created on other website off of certain sections of Reddit. As Imgur is already a fan favorite, the site's generator is sure to catch on quickly.
