I was hoping to create a survey post. I'd like to know if you use Safari or FireFox and are using its Color Management abilities.

If have no clue what I am talking about, then you are likely NOT using color management.

For more information, you can read more over here:
http://www.gballard.net/psd/go_live_...profiles.html#

As you mouse over and back from the top image of "Three Tagged Files in One Box", you should see NO difference if you are using a color managed browser.

Anyway, I am curious what percentage of people, especially photographers and enthusiasts, are using color managed browsers.

Please reply with a "Yes, I use a color managed browser" or "No, I don't use a color managed browser." Even a brief "yes" or "no" will do. Thanks.

Yes. Safari and Firefox 3

Thank you David. I hope others answer as well.

I use Firefox, but just realized yesterday that it had Color Management capabilities that I had turn on.

In discussing this topic with another photographer, we wondered how many people even knew about turning on Color Management. So that is why I am curious. Can photographers assume that at least some of their viewing audience will see their images as intended--that is, with the proper colors?

Yes, I prefer Firefox... But Safari seems to work with most sites better than Firefox 3.

No... most viewers don't have color management. Internet Explorer is not managed(or wasn't last time I paid any attention to it). And unless they have changed it, Firefox's color management must be turned on, it's off by default. Safari is the only one that is on by default that I know of.

And even then, you need to tell FireFox which ICC file to use. Not a big deal, but still troublesome for many folks.

Thank you for replying.

I'm using color management in Firefox 3. But I fear we are fighting a loosing battle until Microsoft gets off their rump and makes it a standard in windows.
