View color information on any WordPress page

This is not so much a WordPress tip, but just a general tip for anyone doing web design. It’s a tip that saves me so much time when it comes to trying to duplicate colors that I like on websites. It’s using The Web Developer extension for Firefox.  This tool has saved my butt many times.

Just one of the cool features is the ability to display the colors used on any web page. Below is a screenshot of the colors used on Google.com.

These are the colors used on Google.com

To view this option after installing The Web Developer extension, open your Firefox browser, then go to a site that you like, then in the browser navigation menu go to: Tools > Web Developer > Information > View Color Information.

This extension has so many more useful tools that I’m not sure what I’d do if I didn’t have it. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t use one of the tools in this extension. Check it out…you’ll be glad you did.
