Leveraging Chromium’s built-in EyeDroper API —which I wrote about earlier this yearPatrick Brosset created an extension for Chromium that allows you to pick a color from anywhere on your screen.

In an accompanying blogpost he also explains how he built it:

Back when I worked on the [EyeDroper API] article, I got interested in whether the API would also work in browser extensions, which it does! So I built a small extension that lets you grab colors from your screen, and store them locally for later reuse.
