Email us at [email protected] and we will look into it. There are 5 different built in tools including a color picker to help you through your design journey. The first tool is the Color Picker. Our color picker uses zoom technology that will accurately get you the closest color to where you hover over. You can access the color picker by right clicking the page or Cmd/Ctrl + Shift + e. We made sure the experience of picking colors was smooth, quick and efficient. When you color pick on any website, we generate a picture from the site, and pinpoint the exact location of your cursor to find that color. Choose as many colors from any site, click Save & Exit and they are automatically added to your overall saves. Great color pickers are very hard to find which is why we added countless hours to make sure our color picker is the best. Our color picker is the most accurate, the fastest and we guarantee you will have the best experience with it. We created our color picker with the mind set of ease. Our color picker ensures that every color you pick is exactly that color or at least the closest color to it. With that in mind, our color picker is super quick and calculates that color hex wherever you hover over. The second tool is a Color Search. When developing this functionality, we took our personal experiences into consideration and found that finding colors that match each other was one of the hardest things. We would go to so many websites to find what we are looking for. We wasted so much time just to get the colors that worked together. If you are a designer or developer, you know what we are talking about. With Color by Fardos, it now takes seconds to get matching color combos like Shades, Tints, Complementary, Triadic, Analogous, Split Complementary and Tetradic colors. Within any color, there is an explosion of new similar colors that will work perfectly together all built into one extension. Within any color you choose, you can now save those colors so they stay with you wherever you go. We made sure this was a feature because everyone knows the pain of trying to find the color they used before. Accessing those colors on any Chrome browser is super easy. The third tool is a Color Chooser. We designed our color chooser with a black theme because we wanted to remove any distraction when trying to choose that perfect color. Whenever you change the color, it automatically changes the selected color within the entire extension. So, if you change from white to black and go to Color Search, that color is now black. This allows for a much more fluent experience within the entire extension. The fourth tool is Gradients. Gradients are incredibly painful to code. Finding the perfect blend of colors contributes largely to what works and what doesn't. We made sure that our gradient builder took that into consideration. With our gradient builder, every gradient is beautifully composed and generated. Add as many stops as you want, use your saved colors to make something beautiful, choose whether linear or radial and most importantly, save them so you can use them whenever you want. After you have created that gradient, all you have to do is click Copy CSS, and you are set. No more hassling if you missed a comma between your colors. Every gradient comes with a generated palette. Whether you are creating your own gradients, choose one of our gradients, color palettes help you find the perfect blend-able color. Copy the colors just by clicking and start using them in your designs. The fifth tool is Site Pallete. Site Pallete allows you to get all the colors of a page instantly. We quickly screenshot each section and allow you to add any of the colors you like, directly to your saved colors. Site Pallete is quick and easy and can be located in your toolbar next to the Eye Dropper / Color Picker.

  • (2023-11-18) Rodrigo / FabbricaWeb: hijacks your Google Search result
  • (2023-10-31) Sergio Pérez: ¡¡NO DESCARGAR!! Hace redirecciones en los resultados de búsqueda de Google.
  • (2023-10-25) Rob Hutchings: I've been using Edge for some time now but had reason to switch back to Chrome, this long forgotten extension has (as others before me have clearly stated) gone rogue and is hijacking your links. Chrome itself flags that the resultant site is unsafe when you inadvertently click on a search result, in my case it was the Udemy site. When I went back to the results and hover over the link you can see the URL flashes up at the bottom with a tatrck.com affiliate link which is currently redirecting to flexlinkspro.com ... So I went through disabling extensions one by one and refreshing the results in-between and sure enough it stopped happening when this was disabled. Reported. Removed ... Please avoid!
  • (2023-07-23) Magnus Stieler: Malicious, be careful! I found this extension which is safe and works perfectly. https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mbnpegpimodgjmlbfhkkdgbcfjmgpoad
  • (2023-07-11) Alex Gomes: As of this review, the extension has a severe security vulnerability. Adding this extension will lead to clickjacking.
  • (2023-07-05) Thomas: It redirects you to affiliate websites while normal surfing on websites. What a scam.
  • (2023-05-23) 建浩李: You are redirecting google to bing, you are doing something bad. Do not respect the actions of our users. As someone from another country I'm disappointed
  • (2023-03-25) GoogM: actual scum
  • (2023-03-18) BENIGNODESIGNS OVERTHINKTANK (benignodesigns): Just add HSL, and it will be the best application by far!
  • (2023-03-17) Alexandru Bondor: Redirects to affiliated links on google search results
  • (2023-03-11) Balaji K: Redirecting Al URLs to Affiliated Links.
  • (2023-03-07) Piyush Choudhary: DO NOT USE THIS EXTENSION. It redirects your google search results to it's own affiliate links. Especially to monetoad.com. Horrible app and how can chrome web store even allow such app to exist here?
  • (2023-03-06) Антон: Скам. Добавляет редиректы на выдаче google
  • (2023-02-25) Samuel Román: NO LA DESCARGUEIS. Desde hace poco, me empezó a saltar el antivirus a cada dos o tres búsquedas de Google, porque me redirigía a una página peligrosa (kqdxc4m5.de). Probé a analizar mi equipo y nada, hasta que desactivé todas las extensiones y las activé una a una probando si me saltaba el antivirus. Al final esta fue la que causaba el problema (lo cual me sorprendió porque llevaba meses usándola e iba todo bien). Os recomiendo como alternativa un programa que se llama Microsoft Powertools, que tiene un montón de herramientas y, entre ellas, una que te deja identificar los colores. Funciona en todas las ventanas y se puede activar con un atajo de teclado.
  • (2023-02-02) Joel Miedema: Used to work great, but I can confirm like the rest that this is now hijacking Google search results and replacing them with affiliate links.
  • (2023-01-02) Nicolas Walter: One of the best color picker. Everything works and it's a great tool.
  • (2022-12-20) Jordan Schott: This used to be the absolute best, no they're clearly compromised. Just trying to access a Facebook page from a Google search redirects to this for example: The page you were on is trying to send you to https://monetoad.com/redir/clickGate.php?u=u68EH62H&p=9z7K3hGCLg&m=30&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fbayitcomputers%2F.
  • (2022-12-17) Elihu Gideon: Like everyone else already said, it hijacks your Google Search result with affiliate links.
  • (2022-12-17) Wei Liu: don't use this extension, as the shameless developer hijacks your google search results!
  • (2022-11-28) Swadhin Agrawal: DO NOT USE. They HIJACK your Google search with the spammy api.smartredirect.de ad service. Not sure if it generates affiliate revenue to them or not but I don't prefer getting hijacked or using a plugin that is malicious intent.
  • (2022-11-28) Alex Kudinov: DO NOT USE. They will hijack your google search results for no reason. All your google searches will start go through api.smartredirect.de ad service.
  • (2022-11-22) Oğuzhan Şimşek: Used to be a good extension but now contains adware. I use Ultimate Color Picker now.
  • (2022-10-11) Bryce Wilkinson: DO NOT INSTALL
  • (2022-10-03) Shane Holland: BEWARE! This extension hijacks your Google search results and redirects through mtusrede.de to earn money via affiliate redirects. HIGHLY UNETHICAL.
  • (2022-09-23) Mahesh Mohan: It was working perfect but now they are injecting malware. I can see affiliate offers when I click certain links and when I disabled this plugin it worked normal. So definitely this plugin has now some sort of malware and its still under "Featured Extensions" by Google.
  • (2022-09-07) Sandesh Maharjan: The extension was working great until it started redirecting the links on Google SERP through a malware site. There is a following example down below: https://mtusrede.de/redir/clickGate.php?u=0KMhnq5u&m=12&p=JK99MCU3FT&t=33&splash=0&q=sideways%20indicator%20tradingview&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.tradingview.com%2Fscripts%2Fsideways%2F
  • (2022-09-06) Svetozar Belić: This was a good utility until it started maliciously intercepting opening search results in google and redirecting them through an adware redirect site.
  • (2022-08-15) safé ben driss: manquante
  • (2022-08-12) Alex Damsa: nice extension, but it doesn't work... it's supposed to be a color picker but the color picker is "not allowed" on any site. don't know why
  • (2022-08-10) Max Gryaznov: Не работает в гугл-таблицах
  • (2022-08-09) Chunqing Xia: I have to disable all the add-ons and enable one by one to find out which one adds affiliate link in Google search results. And it turns out this add-on adds shareasale link in the Google search results!!!
  • (2022-08-07) Whim_si_cal: cool interface, really high quality, but eye dropper cant be used on ANY site, the reason i got it was for the eye dropper, srry, but please fix it <33
  • (2022-02-19) Nacho Arrizabalaga: Cumple al 100%
  • (2022-02-03) Silence: Beautiful UX; Great for web developers
  • (2022-01-31) Coleman Rodriguez: The best
  • (2022-01-22) Evryn Crescendo: I went through nearly 50 different color picker apps/extensions and every time they failed what they were advertising this one appeared to be a failure too at first but once I went into the settings and allowed it to have Incognito and Image URL access it worked just fine! About time too! So don't bother messing with the other Eyedropper/Color Picker Tools this one ACTUALLY WORKS!
  • (2022-01-20) Aaron Isassi: Super muy bien la app
  • (2022-01-19) Onbi F: cool
  • (2021-10-16) Hiyori: Uso somente essa extensão pra salvar cores ou montar uma paleta de cores, a extensão na peca em nada, uso desde 2020 e é a melhor ferramenta que encontrei!
  • (2021-10-12) I am Unknown: This is the definition of user-friendly UI <3 loved it !
  • (2021-09-23) Simon Miller: This extension is soo beautifully made, and satisfying to use! But I miss the ability to shift between color modes.
  • (2021-09-10) Hy Nguyễn: I really love it <3 It's really easy to use! If I have a chance,I'd rate 1 thousand stars for this app

  • (2022-09-28, v:3.1.2) Darren Slatten: Extension Changes RGB Values
    I am using the extension on the following page: https://www.dharmatrading.com/dyes/dharma-fiber-reactive-procion-dyes.html When I use the color picker, it shows me RGB values that are slightly different from the values embedded in the HTML/CSS of the page. For example, the first color (Ivory) shows me rgb(246, 240, 212) in the color picker, but rgb(247, 240, 212) in the HTML code. I checked several colors and most if not all of them were slightly different.

  • (2022-07-21, v:3.1.2) James Murfin: Logos next to SERP results?
    Very weird question: Whevener I have this extension enabled, company logos appear next to some of the SERP results on Google, and other search engines I've checked (Bing and Yahoo). Is this a known feature? I've isolated it by disabling all my other exentions apart from Color Picker. It just seems well outside of the scope of the applicataion.

  • (2021-02-01, v:0.1.8) Michael Rosenberg: Please change the mandatory "command-shift-E" quick command. I use that command every day to center text.
    Hi, I just downloaded this extension today and I really like it for storing my brand colors and color picking with an easy and beautiful interface. However, I'm running into an issue that may make it so that I can't use this extension at all. I type "command-shift-E" all the time in my design work, as it is a popular quick command for centering text. I use that quick command in Google Docs almost every day to center text, so if there's no way to turn off or change this quick command that is now overriding my other apps quick command this extension just won't work for me. Any way this can be fixed?

    As you're choosing a color in the color picker, it does not display the chosen color anywhere on the picker so it is difficult to know what color you're on
  • (2020-01-12, v:0.1.7) Sancho S: 'Pick colors from the site' not working after upgrading chrome

    Thanks for developing and sharing the extension. I've registered at the fardos website, https://fardos.co/#/. However, I don't know how to log in via the chrome extension. Because it only presents three choices: Color by Fardos, Fardos and Pick colors from site. The former two would link me to the chrome app store and Fardos websites, respectively. And the last one just reminds me to create an account to save. Thank you again.
