Awesome Color Picker

Awesome Color Picker 5.0

Awesome Color Picker is a simple color picker extension for Google Chrome
5.0.9600 (See all)

Awesome Color Picker is a simple extension for Google Chrome created to quickly obtain the color code of any color on your screen. It’s the color picker that lets you retrieve color codes using a handy loupe that amplifies any area of the screen.

Furthermore, the extension can pick color values of different formats, including RGB, RGBA, HSL, HSLA, HTML, etc. It saves the color codes you click on to the clipboard and to a local database letting you browse them anytime later. The number of colors to remember is also customizable.

Awesome Color Picker looks indeed very handy, easy-to-use, and convenient, but it has a big problem that cannot be ignored: it doesn’t function anymore. It hasn’t been updated for more than 2 years, and the situation has made this tool simply useless. Instead of picking color codes, the loupe is stuck to a grey-and-white-check pattern. That’s quite a shame, I suppose, as Awesome Color Picker was a nice Google extension with cool additional options.

Until it gets updated and workable again, I suggest that you won't waste time installing this extension as in its current state it simply can not be used .
