Google Chrome version 43.02357, which came out in May, proved to be a nightmare for photography enthusiasts. Most - albeit not all - photos viewed in this version of the popular Web browser suffered from a serious colour burning/clipping issue with abrupt tonal transitions in the shadows. (The more technically inclined among you might like to check out this discussion thread on the Chromium Project website.) Needless to say, this was a potentially huge problem for any photographer displaying and selling their work online. Version 44.0.2403 - now available on all platforms - comes with a fix and appears to display all images properly, so if you happen to have stopped using Chrome for this particular reason, you may want to consider giving it another chance.
