That's what Canvas itself is for.

In principle, it could optimize for Canvas use (uncompressed), and punt to
Canvas for a more complete compression interface.  That doesn't solve it
nicely right now, since there's not yet an API to get a Blob from Canvas
(there's only toDataURL), but that'd be a separate problem (and is needed
anyway, eventually).  I don't have a strong feeling for whether that's
actually a good idea or not.
