Improves the image scaling of Chrome, providing crisper and clearer resized images on pages.
Better Image Scaling is a simple extension that aims to improve the image scaling of Chrome, by applying the "webkit-optimize-contrast" value (from the "image-rendering" CSS property) to all images on a given page, via a content script. However, the difference isn't always noticeable: it depends on the content and the size of the image itself. Sometimes it's subtle, sometimes it isn't. Also note: it doesn't make any difference for images that aren't resized by the browser, and there are even cases in which it doesn't seems to do anything for resized images either. Moreover, as the CSS property optimizes for contrast, there's a downside to it: depending on the image and its size, it will look "serrated", like it's lacking anti-aliasing.

- (2017-12-22) Rami Markus Maunula: Using this, it seems Chrome will downscale pictures using nearest neighbour scaling. Upscaling seems not to be affected. Interesting extension – thank you!
