If you are a web developer and use Internet Explorer, you will be pleased to know that it includes a color picker as part of the developer tools. Here’s how to enable it.

The article tells how to activate the color picker but doesn't say what it is. What the heck is it?

I suppose we should have started with that. The color picker lets you choose a color from the current page, whether from an image, or anything else on the page. That color can then be copied to the clipboard in hex format to be used in Photoshop, an HTML editor, or anywhere else you might want to use it.

Honestly though, if you're a web designer and you use Internet Explorer, you're probably doing it wrong...
