Web Colours

The Default Named HTML Color Codes
HTML color picker
HTML and CSS include colour names, this site lists the HEX codes associated with those colours so you can look up if they meet contrast or other accesibility requirements.
Web Safe Colours
HTML color code swatch
Web Safe Colours is a concept that was more popular in the early web where monitors had a lower colour depth (displayed less colours). This site shows those colours.

Web Search

Geocities Archives

Here you can browse an archive of Geocities based on neighbourhood. It has homepage snapshot previews for each website in the directory.
Oocities heading
Another Geocities archived organised by neighbourhood however unlike RestorativLand it has a generic numeric directory so it's more of a mystery what you'll get when you click on it.
