How do you want to judge colours when your monitor is not calibrated? As long as the colours shown by the monitor do not reflect what is digitally encoded in the file all work is nearly useless. Secondly: LR and CS are colour profile sensitive applications. Most web browsers are not (exceptions: Safari, FF3 - need to be turned on). That means the browser will interpret the colours if the file on a very average basis, ignoring all characteristics of the file and the host computer system. More to read:
