As I understand it Chrome has one flaw; it considers all web images as sRGB tagged. In the eyes of CM experts probably considered a big fault but what does it mean in practice? The best advice is still to use sRGB tagged images on the web. The increasing mobile web surfing done without any CM features does not degrade that advice. Are there other flaws in Chrome ? .. it can not be its speed.

I agree that everything should have CM, including phones but until that is solved is Chrome not a good choice as a stop gap solution?

You're right, all this stuff forces as to prepare our photos for the web in sRGB and giving up with a broader space. I'm just thinking of preparing alternate galleries in a broader space to be explicitly activated only by aware users that know what they're doing.
