Google Chrome – Bad for Color Profiles

June 18, 2009 / by / 1 Comment

Google Chrome may be the fastest browser around.  But for now, it’s also the only one that dumps a color profile you may have set up with color management tools like Spyder2. As a photographer, it’s annoying when you start Chrome and everything goes blue. This is going to be a deal killer for me for a while.  This bug is reported and filed as Issue 1673.  I’ll be following closely.

Update: After many months avoiding Google Chrome for this very reason, I have recently started experimenting with it again.  As of this writing (June 11, 2010), it would appear as though things are fixed on my end.  However, the issue in the bug system still remains open.  So perhaps there are still a few people experiencing the problem.  We will continue to keep you updated.
