colorForth is the latest version of the Forth programming language by Forth's creator and inventor, Charles Moore (chipchuck): extremely minimal, tiny, and fast, with simplified syntax based on color (text traits can be changed to others for the color-blind) to omit some words and typing. Has a custom keyboard configurer and editor to save even more keystrokes. Forms the base of a potent, free VLSI design tool. The official way to spell and capitalize this language, according to its creator's website, is as one word: "colorForth", not the common variants "ColorForth" or "Color Forth".
