Summary: The relative color syntax was introduced in the css-color-5 specification.  It helps users adjust colors programmatically without resorting to other features like color-mix(). It is currently part of the interop 2024 effort.

An example of a lighter, darker and complimentary accent color:

lch(from var(--accent-color) max(l * 1.2, 1.0) c h)
lch(from var(--accent-color) calc(l * 0.5) c h)
lch(from var(--accent-color) l c calc(h + 180))

Bug: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=interop-2024-relative-color-syntax

Specification: https://drafts.csswg.org/css-color-5/#relative-colors

Platform coverage: All

Preference: layout.css.relative-color-syntax.enabled (default off)

DevTools bug: ?

Link to standards-positions discussion: https://mozilla.github.io/standards-positions/#css-relative-color-syntax

Other browsers:
