I have started using Jeffrey Friedl's lightroom plugin for publishing to Flickr in conjunction with the metadata wrangler which offers an option to remove the ICC color profile. However there is a note against this, saying
It's generally best to preserve the color profile, unless you have a specific reason not to.
However my understanding is that all web browsers will assume by default that the colour space is sRGB if this is not present, and some will use sRGB even if another colour space is specified. Are there any specific reasons why it might be a good idea to keep this in?
