  • No, it’s not fixed. Compare with the Firefox result:!ArDhQNmhsUj03I0hflora9Ref5VFpQ

    To make it worse, try zoom-in and then zoom-out.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for providing this information about the issue. After thorough testing, we are unable to reproduce this problem in the current Edge build. Please test this behavior in our latest public stable 16299.

    If you still have the problem in 16299, please link us to the webpage or reduced code sample which shows the problem (not screenshots).

    Best Wishes,
    The MS Edge Team

  • Example links are provided in the Stackexchange thread linked in the very first comment. See and compare images on the right between Edge and any other browser. Serious aliasing is visible.

    Confirmed this in version 16299. Screenshot:

  • Why has this been marked "Won’t fix"? Do you not believe it is an issue? Can you not see how the images are rendered awfully in the screenshots provided?

  • Has this truly been decided to not be fixed!? If so, myself and my web design/development company are through putting in any sort of effort to support Edge, and I will actively put in banners recommending users use Chrome/Firefox/Opera instead if they visit any of our sites. Not providing in-browser CSS image resizing is one of the biggest problems Microsoft could create for itself, it is absolutely vital to responsive web development.

    I thought Safari was 'the new IE’, but it looks like you guys got jealous and wanted Edge to keep its status instead. Beyond disappointed, especially after all of the good things that have come since the launch of Windows 10.

  • Reactivating auto-resolved valid bugs reported by web dev community. Those were not expected to be resolved. We apologize for any inconvenience!

  • Please fix, it’s so bad it’s embarrassing. :)

  • This issue is still persisting. Strangely enough, when I open a new Tab, enter the website I’m currently working on, and load it, then it looks nice and everything is ok. BUT once I resize the window, the images look so terrible that the text inside the images can’t be read no more! Using fixed sizes of images reminds me of my webdesigns over ten years ago…
    Will this be fixed anytime? Or is the source code of Edge available, so that I can look into this issue myself?
