Quicker color wheel

I made the loading of the accessibility color wheel faster by using images optimized for the web! What do you think about it ? Is it more usable?

For the more technical I have used the new avif format where possible. This is a “better” way of compressing images than the traditional jpeg compression. According to tests I made, the resulting file size is about half the size of the .jpeg file.

You can browse a description of this format.

list.com lives!

Do you remember list.com? it was a program for the dos command prompt that listed the files in the current directory, allowed to view them and to browse the filesystem. It was a 16 bit application and unfortunately cannot be longer used on modern PCs.

But you can simulate it with vifm and less! Here’s how:

Use chocolatey, a package manager for windows that makes easy to install command line applications. After installing it run a command prompt as administrator and type
choco install vifm and choco install less

More agile color choice

Perhaps you’ve already noticed, it’s been a while since in the wheel there are 2 new buttons to choose the colors to test.
These are the color selectors provided by the browser (for the more technical the <input type = ‘color’>). Many modern browsers support this feature.
Let me know what you think!
