I use CodePen a lot for testing little things or getting to the bottom of a problem. Often I just need to color some divs or the like and I always fall back to using

Recently I couldn’t take it anymore. Even though these are often only temporary pens I want them to please my eye at least a little bit. I remembered that there were some more predefined color names that one could use. What I found out was that there are actually 147 color keywords defined in the CSS3 Color Module. Pretty impressive.
I created a CodePen showing them off so I can go there and grab a nice color next time I need one.
