Find and create colors with ease
Are you waiting for your image editor to open just so you can get a few numbers? Wanting to know how purple is represented in the HSL color model? Trying to work out what HSL means? Building a website and finding the best place to see the list of named colors is on Wikipedia?
Now you can do all this completely offline in Chrome with Huey where you can find, create, save and learn about colors.
Browse through existing colors, both named and "web-safe". Filter colors by name, hue, saturation and lightness. Hover over or click a color to get a better view, compare it with other colors and to see its details including its hexadecimal code, RGB values and HSL values. Click these details to easily copy them to the clipboard, or double click a color to instantly copy its hexadecimal code. You can also drag a color to copy its name or hexadecimal code.
Create any color you want by setting either RGB or HSL values. Your color will fill most of the screen. You can copy its details or save the color for later use. Any named or websafe color you find can be sent to creation mode so you can create similar colors.
You can build a color palette of your favorite colors from either named, websafe or custom colors. Easily compare them and view or copy their details.
Learn what hue, saturation and lightness actually mean and how colors are created just by using different amounts of red, green and blue. Find out how to specify colors when building a webpage using all the different formats possible in CSS.
