Web Safe Colours

At one time many computers were only capable of displaying a maximum of 256 colours. A cross-browser "Web Safe Colour Palette" was suggested as a web standard to ensure that all computers would display the colours correctly. Although this is less the issue today, since most computers can display millions of different colours, the web safe palette is still used by many designers and design applications and contains plenty of different colours for most design purposes. Using this palette makes sure that your websites’ colours look the same on all monitors, browsers and computer systems.
