How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

Better image scaling. No more jaggies for downscaled images!

Responsive websites typically send a larger version of an image and then scale it down to match the available space on-screen. This is especially important in mobile when the user can change screen sizes without a reload by changing from portrait to landscape, for example. Even the Microsoft websites utilize this kind of responsive design.

What does this have to do with IE? Well if you do this with IE the insane image scaling will provide images so jagged even the largest fonts become unreadable.

In earlier versions of IE we could use a nonstandard CSS property to switch to Bicubic scaling, but that property was removed!!
