CSS image-set in Webkit (Safari/Chrome)

Safari 6 and Chrome 21 added vendor-prefixed support for the proposed CSS4 image-set specification. This proposed specification is designed to support displays with different pixel densities (read: retina displays).

background-image: url(image.jpg);

/* Also include other prefixed versions of this ... */
background-image: image-set(url(image.jpg) 1x, url(image@2x.jpg) 2x);
