Zoom feature blurry with microsoft edge

on: June 29, 2017, 03:55:46 pm
Not sure where else to post it:

i recently started using Microsoft edge and the zoom feature (clicking on the image) displays the scaled image blurry and not sharp. Is this a known issue? Is there a way to solve it?

As far as I know, Edge doesn't support the image-rendering CSS rules. Pixelation even has the old IE-specific "-ms-interpolation-mode: nearest-neighbor" rule, but Edge doesn't support that either.

There's no solution*, you should use another browser for browsing pixel art sites. image-rendering support is on Edge's roadmap, but it's not a high-priority feature.


* There is technically a solution: using JavaScript to do the scaling. This is overkill, especially since most browsers do already support nearest neighbour sampling in some way.

Yup, all of this. Nothings more needs to be said. Thanks for the post :)

Ok, i'll go with chrome for now. I used to be a firefox user but the performance of it have been bad for me for quite some time already so i wanted to switch.

Try refreshing your profile (question mark in menu, then troubleshooting, then use the button on the top right). It basically creates a new profile and copies over essential stuff. You will lose settings and some other things in the process, and the whole thing is more of a hack than anything else, but I guess the Firefox profile stuff is too archaic and impossible to properly maintain otherwise, so until it is replaced this is the only option.
