Poll: What is your prototype color?

When I'm working in CodePen or debugging in DevTools, I'll usually default to using red on properties to get a quick idea of what I'm working with. For example: background: red;. I'm curious though, what color do you default to? I'd be interested to see if there's a de facto standard that we unintentionally realize or if the results are more random.

What is your prototype color?

I'm stuck with the #008080 classic Windows 95 background color for some reason.

I had a teacher that started new projects with * { border: 1px solid gold } and now I do that every time

For your next project go with red text and yellow background! You know... for great legibility
