Saving animated "gifs" as .jpg

I've noticed around that a lot of people use large animated "gifs" that are actually .jpg files. They seem to be larger files, but the quality is so, so much better. I use Photoshop CS5 and can only seem to save animations as .gif files, and even with a lot of dithering and 256 colours, they never save quite as nice.

I was wondering how people go about making "gifs" that are actually jpgs? Do you use Photoshop or another program?
