    Hi,

    I'm trying to resolve why images render differently in IE - colors are more saturated and overall contrast is higher.
    Firefox and Chrome render absolutely the same.
    Anyone to have the same issue?

    Tech: Windows 7, HP ZR30w monitor (wide gamut).

    Monitor is HP ZR30w, and yes, it's wide gamut.

    Yes, monitor is calibrated with i1 device and Eye-One Match 3 software.
    Monitor profile installed per these instructions: http://www.laszlopusztai.net/2009/08/23/stop-losing-display-calibration-with-windows-7/
    I use only sRGB.
    Now this is getting even more complicated with test page:

    Firefox:



    Chrome:



    Internet Explorer:

    I don't use IE, but I try to avoid using the icc profile for my monitor provided by windows update as that will mess up the colour in Chrome by crushing the blacks and polarising colours, and I definitely don't trust the icc for more accurate colour, what's the point of such "correction"?

    I don't see any point in trying to achieve colour correct results on your screen unless you intend to print. Whatever you post on the internet is likely to show up differently on every computer owned by World+Dog. If you want correct colours, get a calibrator, but it'll only be good for your monitor.

    Exactly! Color management starts with a calibrating tool for the monitor and knowing if you are doing sRGB or AdobeRGB color spaces. For printing AdobeRGB is nice. For seeing and posting stuff on the web, sRGB is just fine.

    If you don't print, why bother with a wide gamut display? I only print a little, so just bought a reasonably accurate IPS LED sRGB display instead. Why don't you just switch your monitor to sRGB mode?

    In fact, using anything but sRGB for online posting of images is fraught with danger, as the vast majority of monitors will be only sRGB capable or set.

    Because it's 30 inches diagonal, everything else looks great and I use Firefox anyway.

    There is no such option.
