Colorzilla firefox extensionΒΆ

Tags: plone

"aknoerig" addded a comment with some extra suggestions to my Firefox UI development tools howto at I added the ColorZilla extension to the list, I'm really enthousiastic about it.

ColorZilla is surprisingly handy. It does what the name suggest: providing a color picker that displays the hex code of the pixel you hover over in the status bar. There's more:

  • Showing the box size of the current box element.
  • Showing the element, class and ID of the current element.
  • Distance between two points.

All in the status bar. As I said, surprisingly handy in that way. Try it! logo
