You use a browser that has proper color management.
Or you can disable color management in GIMP; or assign 'standard srgb'
color profile to the image. To be correct, however, you probably
should convert the image to 'standard srgb' color profile.
(the Image->Mode menu allows you to assign and convert to profiles)
To be completely clear: GIMP is probably showing the image correctly,
while your browser is wrongly assuming that the image is stored with
standard srgb color profile.
