Picasaweb and Flickr displaying photos differently than I see on my home computer

For the past 5 years I have been thinking that Flickr and Picasaweb have been "doing something" to my photos when I upload them which was causing the colors to look less saturated, and somewhat boring. 

I did a Google search and found several board threads where other users were finding the same issue. Determined to get to the bottom of this I kept digging only to find out it was myself that was at fault. Eventually I found a thread that said that most browsers don't understand the Adobe RGB 1998 Color Space! Bingo! 

So I went back to my Photoshop CS2 settings and sure enough I'm defaulted to Adobe RGB. 

Hover over the photo above to see the difference on the web between Adobe RGB and sRGB color space.

Oh, and great baby pic.

Interesting. If my CS2 wasn't already set in sRGB, I probably wouldn't have had a clue about the issue. Good to know.
