      Just Color Picker vs Color Cop opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      It's more reliable, even though you have to use a keyboard combo--it gets the right color every time.

      Yes, it's a mostly good alternative. However, the *only* way to capture the color is to use a program-designated keyboard shortcut. I don't like this, personally, but others might be fine with it. Seems good otherwise. No install needed; just download and use.
