I Like (Stealing? Borrowing?) Your Colors

Do you like someone else’s web design color scheme? Curious as to what color codes are used? Try Red Alt – I Like Your Colors. Just enter a URl, and it fetches the colors used as defined in HTML or CSS (some sites seem not to give them up as easily, perhaps with the @import method of CSS?). For example, I ran it on the BurningBird site and found out shades or reds and brown’s in Shelly’s current bird theme:

Fairly cool. I don’t get much from top designers like http://www.stopdesign.com/ or http://www.zeldman.com/, maybe their colors are tucked away.
