Advisory: Google Chrome Color Management is Broken, at least on macOS

Update 16 October: Chrome has a serious version update bug:

Version bugs aside, color management remains broken using Google Chrome 54.0.2840.59 as tested both on my Mac Pro and on my iMac 5K.

...

Update June 2017: Chrome may finally get a fix sometime in the summer.

All my comments here apply to macOS. I do not have a Windows system. Windows users tell me that Google Chrome supports color spaces on Windows, but I have not verified that myself.

Google Chrome color management is 100% broken as of my check today on macOS Sierra: it appears to be ignoring color space in images. Updating to the very latest version, color management remains broken.

Check if your browser supports color spaces.

I don’t know if this is a macOS Sierra issue only, or general. I do know that Google Chrome hangs on quit, so it has compatibility problems in general with macOS Sierra.

Recommendation: use Apple Safari (first choice, for Mac) or Firefox for proper viewing of images on this site.

To my knowledge, neither Chrome nor Firefox are using embedded color profiles, in neither Sierra nor before.

They always display colors (even HTML-Colors in stylesheets!) using the display profile.
So it depends on whether your display is Adobe RGB or sRGB and whether your photo uses sRGB or AdobeRGB whether it will displayed somehow accurate.

Can it be that Safari is the only browser with a working color management?

DIGLLOYD: I thought that Chrome supported color profiles at one point, but I just don’t know for sure. At present, it is unacceptable, both for its hang-on-quit behavior and its lack of support for color profiles.

Firefox seems to be OK (cursory check).

One reader suggests:

If you find that there are some issues with the colour in Firefox on your machine, this may help: https://cameratico.com/guides/firefox-color-management/

Not sure what you may or may not have set up already, but if not the above linked article helps you configure Firefox’s hidden colour settings. You can then test here;

And of course using your own test page that you developed.

DIGLLOYD: Firefox seems to be OK (cursory check). Firefox has poor performance compared to Safari so I never use it myself.

Rigorously lab tested and OWC certified.
