Recently I've updated my Google Chrome Browser and after the update, all websites showed wrong colors. In my case, all the colors got a red touch. Example:

Chrome Browser shows wrong colour

This happened due to some changes that Google made in color rendering and it can be fixed easily:

Step 1: Open the Chrome Browser settings

Enter the URL:


in the address bar of your Chrome Browser.

Step 2: Change the Color profile

Scroll down the page until the point "Force Color Profile".

Google Chrome Force Color Profile

In my case, I had to change the value from "Default" to "sRGB". The correct value may vary, so just test out which one looks best on your monitor.

Choose sRGB Color Profile

Restart the Chrome Browser to apply the change. The Browser will ask for the restart automatically.

Now the website shows up in the correct colors again.

    Thank you! I have had this issue for so long that I forgot about it until an online purchase had arrived but it’s colors turned out much brighter vibrant than the photos on the web page shop.

    Thank you so much. I was having this issue for a very long time. Now the colors in Chrome look as nice as in Firefox.

      Like I mentioned in the post, try all modes to find the one that best matches the color setup of your desktop. This does not necessarily has to be sRGB like on my system.
