Getting the perfect color you saw on the internet could be really hard by just looking at it. With ColorZilla you can get the right HTML color codes at ease. It allows you to get a color reading from any point in the browser, quickly adjusts color and paste it into another program.

Are you constantly looking for fresh new ideas or themes? This Chrome extension might be right for you. Palettab generates ideas for your creative projects, it helps you discover new fonts and color collections every time you hit the new tab button.
Once you install the extension, just click on a new tab in the Chrome browser and a five-part color combo with a unique name and author will appear. Inside of each color swatch is a different font sample.
In selecting the color scheme, click the name at the bottom of the window; to select the font, click its name inside the swatch.
