 document.body.style.background = "#"+("00000"+c.toString(16)).slice(-6);

}
function pause(e) {

}
function init() {
 var s = window.location.search;

Click to stop on a particular color that you especially like. Click again to continue moving through the colors. If you let it run, you’ll see all 16581375 colors in just over 23 hours.

Happy new year.
