Risk impact

ColorFish Color Picker requires very minimum permissions and is relatively safe to use.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

ColorFish Color Picker has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that an Edge add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Edge add-on reputation on Edge Add-on Store, the amount of time the Edge add-on has been around, and other signals about the Edge add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing an Edge add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

The tool is great. The icon is too small and complicated, it's not easy to identify in the extension bar.

Appears to be working fine on my Edge browser in Windows 10. I enjoy the little colour names that show up when you pick a colour! I wish I could scroll the page while picking colours. Works fine with Canva though, which is my main use for colour picker extensions.
