Since Lion's Digital Color Meter not only no longer shows HEX values, but no does not allow copying to clipboard, I'm looking for a replacement tool. This seemed perfect, but even the latest version (1.01 modified 7/26/11) still has the bug that doesn't copy hex string to clipboard. My search continues.

Finally a program that does exactly what is needed and nothing more.

There's only one usability aspect: Dragging is not so easy for people with notebooks.
As soon as you start the app the cursor should start picking. When you click it should remeber that colour.
