How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

image-rendering: pixelated

This declaration is used to preserve pixels when scaling up images (e.g. pixel art). IE provides this functionality via -ms-interpolation-mode: nearest-neighbor. The other browser engines also provide this functionality (see here:

    At least you could have kept -ms-interpolation-mode instead of offering nothing in return! IE7 is better than Edge! I won't be using it until this gets fixed.

    Microsoft should just stop trying to develop a usable browser, after 2 decades of trying! Instead maybe have Chrome as the standard browser?

    I made an account just for this! (and blend modes) One day Microsoft's new operating system's new browser that boasts about its render engine will have the cutting edge rending support of 2006! (IE7)

    i cannot believe this is is missing from edge. responsive web design requires image resizing, and if you want your site to not look terrible, those images need to be resized bicubic, on the client, in the browser.

    which decade is this again?

    I actually don't care about "-ms-interpolation-mode", I would be more than happy with proper bicubic scaling, like the rest of the browser world does. Edge is a promising and welcome new start for MS, bus this single mishap alone disqualifies it as a usable browser.

    This is crucial - Imagery looks awful on edge because the default image rendering is not doing any form of anti aliasing and there is no longer a workaround to fix it.

    @Hollister 1. Specs aren’t stable; new features are added and removed regularly. 2. Just because some features is in a spec at a given point in time, does not mean it should be immediately implemented. Often specs contains vague proposals which haven’t been fully though out.

    You know what would be even better than suggesting individual features from the spec is if they just used the spec.
