Chrometric – Color-blindness Simulation For Web Developement

[This is a useful tool that belongs in every web developer’s utility belt.][link] Color-blindness affects up to 8% of the male population (ladies are safer, only 0.5% are color-blind). Any usability test document that doesn’t test for color-blindness isn’t very good.

Version 0.2 just launched, and it be impressive:

>Inspired by Apple’s Automator application, Fake looks like a combination of Safari and Automator and allows you to run (and re-run) “fake” interactions with the web.
>
>Power Users will love Fake for automating tedious web tasks like filling out lengthy forms and capturing screenshots. Developers can use Fake for graphically configuring automated tests for their webapps, including assertions.
