Converting colors from their hexadecimal values to their RGB counterpart is a common task that any busy designer would like to streamline in their workflow.  While there are a million ways to complete the process, the Hex To RGB Converter from the team at by Jamie Brittain performs this task with simplicity and style. The clean and minimalistic layout is a welcome departure from the free tools that are littered with ads and other extraneous content. Once a color is entered into either the RGB or Hex field, the browser window adjusts to the entered color, and its hexadecimal or RGB value is displayed. (If you add RGB code like this: rgb(0,001,123) it will convert to hex code.)
