I have been using ColorPic by Iconico for the longest time. It is a windows based installation. It simply has the right functionality and usefulness. The best feature is that you can use a "chip" to capture ANY color from your computer screen, from ANY program - I hope that makes since.
  • Colors shown in hexadecimal and decimal
  • Option to adjust color after "capture"
  • Re-sizable magnification area
  • Can use arrow key to nudge colorpicker (for hard to capture small objects)
  • Snap to nearest WebSafe color
  • Free, with no advertisements!
Not only has this been useful for me to choose the colors I want, but also to make icons and a couple basic logos.
