Additional notes

  • The panel from the left is the one that I consider bad (Latest Nightly).

The change is likely intended from the graphics perspective (barring some bug in the profile handling). We did not color manage CSS colors before, so the way they would show up on different monitors was completely different. Now it should be fairly consistent. I'm not sure what front end expected in this case however.

The button hover background matched the panel background only approximately, and only by accident, I think. This change seems fine.
