    I frequently find myself wanting to be able to sample a color on a web page, in Safari, and find out what hex value it is. Is there a little application or extension that would allow me to do this?

    That gives me RGB values, but not a 6-digit web-safe Hex value, which is what I'm looking for.

    No problem. Enjoy! (I was pretty pleased when I found this little app too.)

    I use Safari's developer menu, so I just right click on the page component I want to investigate, select "Inspect Element" from the context menu, then look in the developer panel's "Computed Style" for the color/background-color. You can also choose to view color values as Hex, RGB or HSL.
