In this guide, I will show you how to fix Google Chrome colors in the browser UI. You can see the problem in the screenshot below:

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

Choose sRGB Color Profile

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