          The normal way to open a URL in Safari is via UIApplication.open(_:options:completionHandler:) (or the older openURL(_:)).  However, this does not work for data: URLs because Safari doesn’t claim them.

          OTOH, there are other ways to present GIF data, either in a web view (WKWebView) or, unless you need the whole web view, in an image view.  Do you really need to show this in Safari?
