It was the first. At the moment, it appears that all major browsers now support ICM. This is a handy little test site:

Both photos look identical in IE 11, FF, Chrome, and Opera. Seems all of them are color managed. I think the big difference is the v2 vs. v4 support...as far as I can tell, only IE does v4 ICC support. And, for some reason, Chromium seems to render my ProPhotoRGB images desaturated (which means it isn't being properly converted via ICM), however I am not sure if those images are tagged with a v4 ICC profile or v2.

Firefox version 8 added support for ICC V4. However, it is not enabled by default. It can be enabled by going to about:config in your address bar then gfx.color_management and changing the it to enablev4=true

Full path: about:config, gfx.color_management, enablev4=true

Once changed restart the browser and the setting should be implemented.
