Do anyone here uses IE with a wide gamut calibrated monitor?
kind of curious.
Since there are many photographers here with probably wide gamut monitors, does anyone of you uses IE??

for colour management reasons, it's best not to use IE on a wide gamut monitor... early versions of IE ignore colour profiles in your image and assume it is sRGB, giving you all sorts of possible colour, and usually display it assuming the monitor's colour gamut is only sRGB or less (IE does not take into account monitor color profiling), which results in an oversaturated image... IE9 and IE10 will at least read the colour profile of the image and change it to sRGB, but will still assume the monitor's colour gamut is only sRGB or less, and thus, still display an oversaturated image (still ignores monitor colour profiling)... best to stick to Firefox (and use Firefox '"FULL COLOR MANAGEMENT" (Value 1)' as instructed in this link)...
of course, all this assumes one profiles one's monitors, or otherwise, even Firefox will show an oversaturated image... YMMV
