Web Safe Colors

There are millions of colors available to the web designer. However, most of these colors do not get displayed the same way on every monitor. Monitors depending on their age, brand, and resolution display colors differently. As designers we should be aware of this problem. We should attempt to use colors that will appear on the user’s computer the same way we designed it. Fortunately, there are some 255 colors that are guaranteed to be displayed the same way on every monitor. Those are called web safe colors. It is important to use the safe web colors because we want our websites to be seen the way we designed it.
