Limited to web pages, but Chrome has an Eye Dropper extension that allows you to capture values.

I have but I agree with Others who mention SnagIt. Way better tool and cost is under $50.

Another nice thing about SnagIt is that it can create an entire palette by just grabbing a pixel of color from a web site, word page, or graphic.

And using presets, you can have a screenshot go immediately into Word or other outputs w/out going into the Snagit editor first. When I am documenting a new software tool, I can really jam, using the preset that drops my screenshots directly into Word. And you can set it up so they have a border automatically applied. Love the tool!

It is a great tool and so well worth the money and the hour or so it would take to get up to speed on the things I mentioned.
