Color Names supported on all web browsers

/ Blog / Color Names supported on all web browsers

There are several popular web browsers – Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Opera, Safari. All of them support the following 147 color names. Thus, instead of using hexadecimal color codes, you can simply put the color name.

For instance, use <font color="red"> in HTML in place of <font color="#ff0000">. The same can be employed in CSS too: {color: red;} instead of {color: #ff0000;}.

What is the advantage of using color names instead of hexadecimal color codes?

The one advantage that comes to mind is that it makes it slightly more clear to the person reading the code. After all, we humans are accustomed to words and not arcane code, right?

However, as you can notice, not all color names are supported on all popular web browsers. In such cases, you would need to resort to hexadecimal or RGB color code.
