Original Web Safe Colors

Back in the early days of computing, computers were only able to display 256 colors. Only 216 of these colors were considered to be consistent enough across all browsers to be considered web safe colors. Today computers can display millions of colors, and when using HEX and RGB codes you have 16,777,216 color combination options available. With that being said, the colors below show the Hex Code and the RGB Code of the original 216 web safe colors. If you click on the color code you will be able to see how each color appears on various backgrounds and also how various colors appear on that background color.
