Zenfolio stores the original file, and you can download it, with the original profile, but converts to sRGB for web display - as it should do given the current state of the web.

Not as it should since sometimes you want to be able to share wide gamut images with people. In this day and age there is no reason to be denied the option. Firefox handles it all perfectly. Safari mostly does. IE9 won't let you take advantage of wide gamut but it will make the images look normal on a regular monitor. Google Chrome is the only current browser that will make a total muddle of it.

It's tiresome to never get to be able to see other people's work in wide gamut with the likes of Smugmug and Zenfolio insisting that they know better in all cases. No they do not. They may as well start converting some images to B&W only if they decided some are best seen in B&W.
