How we built it

imageSmoothingEnabled attribute for CanvasRenderingContext2D

The CanvasRenderingContext2D.imageSmoothingEnabled attribute can be set to change if images are smoothed. It is true by default. On getting the imageSmoothingEnabled property, the last value it was set to, is returned.


Previously this attribute was named as webkitImageSmoothingEnabled. The unprefixed alias was shipped since Chrome 30.
