Image similarity in JavaScript

I wrote a little piece of JavaScript to calculate if two images are similar.

The algorithm is fairly simple, but it seems to do a decent work.
It correctly matches images with different scaling, different saturation, some blurring, different compression rates.

More details about the library can be found on its Github page:

Here you can find an in depth discussion of the algorithm:
