Color Cop is one of my favorite free software downloads. It is a small color identifier program for use in Microsoft Windows that provides you with the html hex color code number. Color Cop operates quickly with NO observable drain on system resources. The eyedropper control gives it the color picker functionality, but the program also allows you to magnify parts of the screen for more color details of the graphic you are studying, and provides you with a spectrum of related colors for your color-matching and web design efforts. You can also create custom colors with Color Cop. I've used Color Cop many times over the years, and still return to it as one of my favorite free software programs.
