Choose colours for your website with the websafe colour palette

In the early days of the web, you had to choose websafe colours that would look the same on different platforms and browsers. Today, browsers are more consistent and computer monitor resolutions have improved. Even mobile devices have good colour palettes now. As a result, it's no longer necessary to use web safe colours in your website design. You might nevertheless find this websafe colour palette useful to choose colours for your website, and you can tweak the numbers here and have confidence the colours will still work okay on your site visitors' devices.
