Find Colours To Use On Your Website

As a Web Developer picking colours to use on a website is one of the hardest things for me to do, so I need a bit of help finding different colours that work well together. I needed to find some web apps which can help me with this task. Here is a list of 10 apps I found to help in the colour picker process.
