Color previews don't display when I hover over them.

Joy keeps saying in these videos that if you hover over the hexadecimal colors a preview of the color should appear. It never has for me. I have been finding my colors on an external site and copying the hexadecimal number into Workspaces. However, even the ones that Joy has already written in the code do not display.

Is this a problem on my end or your end? I'm using Firefox 44.0.2.

Hey Abigail,

The hover-over-the-hex-number thing is a browser function. When I checked last, the current version of Firefox still did not support this feature. I do recommend using Chrome when doing Treehouse courses (if possible). Chrome does have this feature.

Although people have their preferences, Chrome is one of the more popular browsers for coders, as its development tools do (in many people's opinions) beat out the other browsers by far. As you continue on in your Treehouse journey, you will realize that the instructors use Chrome and will often explain keyboard shortcuts, dev tools, etc that are unique to Chrome.

Keep Coding! :dizzy:

Ok. Thanks. I figured it was something like that. I'll probably switch over to Chrome for these classes.
