    Am I the only one who notices or cares about this problem?

    Maybe people who only use Safari don't care, but I like to use other browsers sometimes and it bothers me that on the MBP's P3 display (happens on iMac too), the colors appear oversaturated and unrealistic on browsers other than Safari. It's like only Safari can handle the wide gamut properly.

    This problem apparently has occurred since the P3 displays were first introduced in 2015 with the iMac 5K. Are there are any work-arounds or is this just something that will never be fixed?

    Google/Mozilla/etc. would have to update their browsers to color manage properly.

    Guess they don't care enough to do it yet, although it's been almost two years.

    I'm guessing this same problem happens with wide-gamut monitors on Windows? I wouldn't know; I've never used one.
