Summary

Deprecate the attribute boolean webkitImageSmoothingEnabled on CanvasRenderingContext2D.


webkitImageSmoothingEnabled is true per default, setting it to false disables interpolation.

Motivation

It's an alias of the unprefixed imageSmoothingEnabled.


Compatibility Risk

Content that sets webkitImageSmoothingEnabled but not imageSmoothingEnabled will get interpolated.

Alternative implementation suggestion for web developers

Use imageSmoothingEnabled.


Usage information from UseCounter

That's ~0.015%, similar to the unprefixed imageSmoothingEnabled:

Requesting approval to remove too?

No, let it be deprecated for at least one release.
