Antiseptic Switch by starvingartist Antiseptic Switch by starvingartist
I needed a small, fully-featured and easy-to-use color picker with an efficient user interface for my web design work. Switch's wonderful skinning ability is extremely flexible and enabled me to modify it to my needs. I've been using this daily now, and it makes my life so much easier. Maybe you'll find it useful too.

The program's color picker and zoom functions have been reordered and are main focus now. RGB, HSL and HEX values also get full attention below. Gone are the space-hogging and hardly-used OLE values. In the main title bar are "Options" (the Switch icon), "Stay on Top" toggle and "Close" respectively. Also included are eye dropper and magnifying glass cursors.

(Download Switch 1.7.0)

It seems very nice, I use Pixie for a while, but this one seems a lot better. But, does it have to be installed? And do you know a mirror? The site is dead :'( Or do you want to mail me? Please?

Switch, eh? I've been using ColorPic myself, which is also free, and supports zooming too. But ColorPic has 10 "chips" for saving previous colors, a feature I use quite often. Does Switch have this?

At any rate, it's a nice looking skin. Simple, minimal, with everything you really need right there at your fingertips. Nothing fancy, just good old usability in mind. Excellent.

Good to see you submitting again too Stanley. It's been too long. :thumbsup:

I've been looking for a tiny color picker... where can I pick up switch? Hey, remember hundreds of years ago when the Software Database was useful? :)
