Salesforce Colored Favicons is a Google Extension of Salesforce. This tool is very useful for developers who work in more than one org. This tool gives different colors for different types of orgs, i.e.; for developer orgs it shows one color, for sandbox another color, and the same for the UAT and Production.
Users can easily differentiate the orgs by seeing their colors. It helps them not to change the data or code accidentally in Production or in other orgs which is not supposed to do. Hence this feature helps many developers. It came into existence in Winter 2014.
