My browser is Firefox and I believe it is color managed.

My monitors have been color magaed since before that article was
written - except for now while I wait for the necessary X-Rite i1 to
manage my new monitors. Nevertheless, I believe them to be fairly
accurately managed for whatevere color profile I may choose for them.

That can be expected to change with the coming flood of wider gamut
monitors onto the market.

coming? the floodgates have been open for a while.

hundreds of millions of devices with wide gamut displays are already
out there, with more appearing every single day.

RIMM and ERIMM are available to them ..., leads to the same workflow as
sRGB without a display profile selection, in addition to a compromise
default

if you are going to rework the whole thing, may as well use an
appearance model, would be nice if ICC standardized light boxes/etc.

Still a small factor, I think. People have different
OSs, different monitors, different monitor settings...
If a page depends on the browser recognizing color
profiles then the webmaster doesn't know what
they're doing. Webpages are simply not designed
for that kind of precision. Nor are computers, for
that matter. It's one thing to calibrate your own
computer to your printer. It's another to expect
that you can pass on that accuracy to someone
else's machine.

Interestingly, when I first went to that page I
saw the yellow car. I then tried changing the Firefox
pref for gfx.color_management.mode, trying to
figure out what prefs might affect the display, but
nothing changed. Actually, I tried the setting to
always apply color management. Today I see the
purple car in both Firefox and Pale Moon. Yet it
was only in PM that I made any settings change
in the first place, and I later changed that back
to the setting to only apply color management for
tagged images.

I also see a purple car when I download the image
and view it with various software. The author didn't
explain how the purple vs yellow shows. When I look
at the image bytes I see a simple JFIF, no EXIF data.

exactly the problem that colour management solves.

If a page depends on the browser recognizing color
profiles then the webmaster doesn't know what
they're doing.


nonsense.

it show that the webmaster *does* know what they're doing and that they
want people to see accurate images, which is why the images have
embedded profiles.

Webpages are simply not designed
for that kind of precision.


your webpages might not be, but plenty are.

Nor are computers, for
that matter.


nonsense.

It's one thing to calibrate your own
computer to your printer.


and the wrong way to do it.

that you can pass on that accuracy to someone
else's machine.


something which works quite well.

png and tiff support embedded profiles

might be nice to embed abstract profiles of the edits, in addition, that
way you always have the original to purpose otherwise

might be a good archival solution
