Recent in Chrome, people started to noticed the blur has changed even tho they have not changed anything in their code, it is still working but too pixelated and not as nice as it used to be in previous versions.

Example using LQIP-LOADER for webpack showing the difference before and after:

Example from a Medium blog post using different ways \ techniques to generate Base64:

Bandaid solution:
For now I can think of a solution like this in CSS, it's not ideal but will fix it until I understand the browser behaviour:

img {
  filter: blur(25px);

Please check browser suport for CSS filters here

I'll be working hard on this to understand what has changed and how to solve it!

Chrome has done that to match other browsers and save memory & improve gpu perf.

please look at the issue:

You can use CSS blur to dramatically improve the quality:

img {
  filter: blur(25px);
