    Okay, so I've very recently made the transition from Google chrome to Safari, as I realised that Safari runs much cooler on my MBP than chrome ever did (normal browsing temps of 45-50 compared to 60-70). I also made the transition to OS X Yosemite in the same day and I've noticed that for some reason YouTube on safari seems to have dull colours? Is this just an issue with my Safari, or has anyone else noticed this? And is there a way to change this? These are the screen shots i took of a youtube video, the top being safari and bottom being chrome.

    The facial tones on your screen shot for Safari appear to be more accurate. I have to use Chrome at work (it's that or Microsoft's Internet Implosion), and images/videos on it appear a bit more saturated and contrasty.

    Just my opinion, but Safari tends to be a bit more accurate as to color rendition. i.e. Chrome adds something that isn't there.

    I honestly cannot tell the difference between the two.

    The top one looks more natural to me.

    Not sure if it's the answer, but Safari does apply your display color profile to it's rendering, which no other browser to my knowledge does.

    The Chrome version looks over saturated to me. The top image is much more natural looking.
