Again, just my opinion, but I see nothing after OS 10.10 that ...

It is no different than the highlight color when a layer is active. It's a remnant from when the app didn't have a color UI. The Meatball directly indicates artwork selection.

You do not need any external tools if you are using a browser. You can just use the built-in colour picker of the development tools. I'll give an example for Chrome, but it's basically the same for every browser. Right-click and choose 'Inspect element' or F12 or CTRL+SHIFT+C In element.style, type a property with a color, e.g. color: red Click the colored ...

Photoshop can do this as well, and with the benefit of actions, some parts of this repeating workflow could be automated, possibly reducing your 3-4 hours a day.
