I know if you want to add opacity to a color, you use the rgba format, which is a bit of a PITA because you have to convert from hex to decimal values, but while working on a project, I noticed in the inspector this new format.

It’s an 8-character Hex format!

Hadn’t heard of that before either, but apparently it is indeed the hex equivalent for RGBA: https://css-tricks.com/8-digit-hex-codes/

Limited use by the looks of it:

Yes it’s new, but limited. I’m looking forward to it.

Cool! Although I prefer RGB over HEX the majority of the time. Easier to code colour changes since it’s all numbers.

So is hex, once you get used to base 16. :wink:
