What Are Web-Safe Colors?

Web-Safe colors are the 216 colors that appear the same across all browsers and computer monitors that display at least 8-bit color (256 colors). So no matter what platform one is on they will see the exact same color across all of them. Due to different computers and computer settings colors may not look the same on all platforms, so while you may see one color on your monitor someone else may see a slightly different color on their computer, but if choose to use web safe colors on your websites they should be consistent across all platforms.
