FF3 previewing - explanation...

Steps I take for web development;

  • Create a web site mock-up in Illustrator to finalize design and

color scheme.

  • Implement in Dreamweaver (use color values from Illustrator design).

  • Process all photos in Photoshop (sRGB for web).

  • Test and preview in Foxfire v3.

Keep colors on web site and photos in sRGB color gamut. All color
except in Dreamweaver will be accurate.

That has me confused. Sorry if this seems obvious, but if you're
testing and previewing in Foxfire 3, which I understand is color
managed, how do you know what the images will look like in IE?

The objective is to create web pages that will look correct to the majority who are using "sRGB monitors".

To see how the web pages will look on a regular sRGB monitor, you'd have to either a) view them on an sRGB monitor, or b) view them on a wide-gamut monitor using a fully colour managed browser like Firefox 3.

You're saving the photos in CS3 in sRGB, so that should work for IE.
Do you also preview in IE?

If you checked web pages in IE6 on the wide-gamut display, then this wouldn't show them how they would appear to most "sRGB display" users - they'd look oversaturated to you (and other wide-gamut display owners), but will actually look normal/correct to sRGB display users.

Is the reason you use Foxfire to check on Foxfire, as to whether it
presents sRGB images correctly? Why use the color managed beta
browser for previews, since almost no one else has it as yet?

As explained above, using FF3 on a wide-gamut display is roughly equivalent to using IE6 on an sRGB display (but only as regards the different display gamut/profile - not different image data profiles).
