    One of my biggest pet peeves about my 2016 MacBook Pro is that Safari seems to be the only browser that displays the P3 color gamut properly. Chrome, Firefox, and Opera all oversaturate the colors. Googling this issue seems like it was still an issue back with the 2015 iMac and it hasn't been resolved since.

    Does anyone know any kind of add-on or workaround that fixes it? Or is it just something we have to live with until Chrome and Firefox get their act together?

    I just wanted to chime in and say that I'm also experiencing this exact issue. I'm running a Dell U2410 display via Thunderbolt to VGA on a mid-2015 Retina MacBook Pro 15" (2.5ghz i7, 16gb ram, AMD radeon R9 2048 mb.) It does occur both on the Dell display (more apparently) and also on the native MacBook pro display (albeit, less noticeably.)

    I should add that I've never used a wide-gamut display otherwise. Does this happen on wide gamut monitors with Windows? Is it unique to Mac? Are some programs (like Chrome and Firefox) just not attuned to the wide gamut? If so, how come I don't run into issues with other third party programs? Is it just browsers that suffer this issue?

    Lots of questions...

    I will also note: When swiping back to a different page in Safari with either the track pad or a magic mouse, graphics that are quickly loaded appear with the brighter color space (just as displayed in Chrome), and upon full load of the site, revert back to the duller color display of safari.
