          Issue ID: 15301
           Summary: The D logo has no embedded colour profile, causing
                    significant differences on wide gamut displays in
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW

Chrome handles untagged colour profiles oddly, using the monitor's colour
profile instead of sRGB. Firefox and Safari assume the image is in sRGB, then
convert to the monitor profile there. When using a wide gamut display (such as
the new 5k iMacs with P3 display), this causes the logo to appear significantly
different in Chrome than in Safari. This issue does not exist in Windows as
Windows will automatically assign an sRGB profile to untagged images. And
though this is a Chrome bug, it affects the D logo much more significantly than
