Steps to reproduce
Github Issue: https://github.com/Microsoft/ChakraCore/issues/1262
On a project I was working on Edge was way slower than other browsers. It turns out the bottleneck was accessing the DOM for the canvas.
Once the size of the map gets bigger than the canvas (485x485) it changes to a different render algorithm which was ~15 times slower on Edge compared to Firefox.

canvas rendering very very very slow for images larger than about 500px. so slow that our app is useless on Edge so we will put up a notice not to use Edge due to performance issues. this is the only browser with the issue. even ie11 renders ok. the app is under development so no link to demo…sorry about that.
