And speaking of which, it seems that you DO need to calibrate your monitor.Which probably explains the wrongness of the colors when viewed else where after editing.
You can take a look at my gamut for the samsung CRT, when i was using it last time, there wasn't much of a color shift at all.
my only solution to this problem for now is to image-convert to monitor profile
and then adjust the colors to match the sRGB one...then save for web and discard the monitor profile.
This way both mac and windows platforms view the picture based on its monitor profile and i get similiar colors across it. The downside? Uncalibrated monitors definitely cannot see accurate colors in this way. Safari even though as it may be color aware, will view the pictures without embedded profiles using the monitor profile OSX is set to.
other than that, i got to start shopping for a new monitor=/
