But obviously as usual, let’s have a look at the tool itself to see how this works in practice. So, here is the Chrome extension as you can see and I already installed it. Let’s have a look at how this works.
It will end up here in your Chrome extensions bar and from that, you can just click on it and it will appear. And as you can see, the last color I used was white smoke with this HEX code but for example, like this color of green to use.
I would go and pick it and just point with my mouse to it. And you can see it in the right-hand corner below, that will show the code in RGB and HEX.
So, I cannot show it with my mouse because then it will disappear, as you can see, but it’s over here now.
Depending on where you are pointing with your mouse. And if I click on it, it will be automatically saved to my clipboard. As I can show you over here.

So, this is all to it. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s very easy and straightforward.
Just add it to Chrome and you will use it many times. I’m sure of it.
