Question about color profiles and posting to the web....

Hello all..

Years ago, the general understanding was that for posting JPG's to the web, it was best to do so in the sRGB profile mode.  But since then much has happened with browsers and how they display images (and color profiles).  In the past, if you uploaded a JPG that had an Adobe 1998 RGB profile, the images would actually look a bit bland.  However, if you uploaded one in sRGB mode, they looked just fine (just the reverse of what you'd see on your PC/MAC).

My question is, does this philosophy still apply to the latest browsers?  I shoot all of my images in Adobe 1998 RGB mode and I've uploaded them to my Photobucket web hosting service (in the same profile).  But somehow (perhaps it's just my eyes), the images don't have the "pop" that they did while looking at them while they were still on my PC.

Need your input and suggestions here...
