Post Free software for visualizing ICC-profiles

Hi

I need software that lets me visualize ICC-profiles and compare the gamut (it's for a tutorial discussing the gamut of different profiles).
I'm looking for a basic 2D presentation like this (Even if it dispalys only one at a time it's fine as i could combine them in Photoshop later).

3D comparison of two profiles could also be interesting but not required.

I need this on OS X, but if no good OS X-compatible software is available I could do this in Winows on another computer.

The ColorSync utility will let you do this albeit not in the most robust and intuitive way.

Hmmm, will check on monday, but I thought the ColorSync utility only showed a 3D version of one profile at a time?

The trick is using the contextual menu over the Lab plot “hold for comparison” after which you select another profile in the list and you can plot them together.
