PDF color differences

Hi, I'm venturing into virtual cards for the first time. I downloaded the Master List PDF and noticed that the colors are a bit different if I open the PDF within Chrome/Adobe vs Edge. To my eyes, Edge seems to be the correct one, with Chrome adding a little bit too much blue to the colors (easiest to see on Dark Side character cards), but see the attached screenshots. Has anyone every noticed these differences? Any idea which one is more "correct?" Include screenshots of Edge version, Chrome version, and side-by-side.

I'd say that what matters is the printed color, not the displayed color.

FYI

During proofing we've noticed that if you download the pdf and open in adobe viewer it will give different results than the browsers. Related, the text font (especially destiny numbers) looks different in the browsers. The pdf viewer is much more accurate to the actual printed product.

Moral of this post is don't use Adobe products. Seriously, use Chrome to open PDFs, or Preview on Macs. It will save you endless headaches.
