The 216 Color Web Safe Color Chart

The "browser safe" color palette below was a pretty useful tool for web designers a few years ago when the majority of computers users' systems were set to use 256 (8 bit) color, and using 'unsafe' colors could produce color dithering on many systems. Today, however, the majority of your website visitors are using true color or high color settings. There may yet be a need for the browser-safe palette when designing for alternative online publishing devices, such as cell phones and PDAs which use 1-bit (black and white) or 8-bit color, but website designers are generally moving away from strict adherence to the browser safe chart.

While the 216 palette is no longer a good choice for every image whose palette you reduce for the GIF format (especially photos and paintings) it can be very useful in many instances. For instance, when choosing backgrounds or font color tags in HTML, or when creating simple graphics like bullets, arrows, buttons, and text-based graphics.

Below is a color chart of the 216 palette which includes the RGB values and the HEX code for each color.
