Chrome DevTools: UI and feature enhancements to the Colour Picker and eye dropper toolsLast updated: 19th July 2020
The colour picker tool in DevTools is getting an upgrade.
- There's an eye dropper feature.
- Simple interface to pick your colour including alpha.
- Colour format switcher (hex, rgba, hsla).
The the colour picker tool now has a contrast ratio feature.
This newer feature helps with accessibility and can indicate to you when your text colour contrasts poorly against the background colour. I've also made a YouTube video and article on this subject. Accessibility debugging in Chrome DevTools.
