Just type in the name of a colour into the Google search bar, and get a screenful (as well as all the RGB, CMYK values, pantone numbers etc)

       colours on the screen vary between monitors so while this is a good idea (and is getting a bun) it may not be completely accurate

       Perhaps, but with something like the prefix "col:" behind it, like when you're searching for a definition.

       Papayawhip is an X11 colour. That's where the majority of those named colour entities in web graphics come from.

       For some reason I thought that this was going to be a tool where you scanned in a picture and sent it to Google to colour in for you, but this makes much more sense. Google now does a similar thing with music (try searching for Elton John) so this would be easy to implement, I'm sure. Well done also on putting the 'u' in 'colour'.

       I'm fairly sure that he didn't start the "u" in color trend. I think it was Charlemange, or Henry the 8th.
