More Crayons!

More Crayons is a site promoting the idea of a web-smart color palette of 4096 colors, rather than the traditional web-safe color palette of 216 colors (which, incidentally, this article proves should really only be 22 colors). This 4096-color palette (which consists of combos of 00,11,22,33,44,55,66,77,88,99,aa,bb,cc,dd,ee,ff), won’t really work on 8-bit (256-color) systems, but will work on 16/24-bit color systems, which something like 90% of the web-users in the world have.

Yay! I like this. It scares me, but it’s exciting.
