Firefox plugin of the day: ColorZilla

Writing about web page

Almost every day I discover something new and cool about Firefox. Today I had a screenshot of a mock up for the new "My comments" screen for BlogBuilder, I had it open in Firefox. I just wanted to pick a few colours from the image but couldn't be bothered to fire up Photoshop just to grab a few colours.

ColorZilla to the rescue. ColorZilla is a Firefox extension that sits in the bottom status bar and lets you do all sorts of handy color picking features. It has a built in colour picker tool and an eye-dropper to pick any colour off the screen, even with a zoom function. It then lets you copy to the clipboard various ways of expressing that colour, such as #27657f, 27657f, rgb(15%, 40%, 50%), rgb(39, 101, 127). Great stuff.
