The ImageBitmap rendering context for <canvas>

A new rendering context that streamlines the display of ImageBitmap objects. This new rendering context uses transfer semantics to take ownership of the pixels of an ImageBitmap object, thus avoiding memory duplication and rasterization overhead.

Comments

Feature was accidentally shipped with the wrong method name in Firefox (transferImageBitmap instead of transferFromImageBitmap)
