Chrome color managed?

Chrome, Google's new browser that is based on WebKit, was not color managed in the release for windows. I saw a link to some prerelease binaries of Chrome for the Mac on Daring Fireball. And lo and behold. Doing a little test shows that these prerelease builds of Chrome now color manage tagged images. It doesn't manage untagged images like Firefox does, but uses the Safari method. This is a very good development and counters my initial criticism. Thanks Google!

  1. Do you know the reason why google chrome renders colors differently than safari or firefox 3.5 although icc v4 test says it supports. I have test image at , which has colour profile attached. It looks darken and less saturated on google chrome.
