    Color, because
    1) that's how it's spelled (here)
    2) that's how it's pronounced.

    Cuh - LOR
    not
    Coh - loh - UHR

    First one = American
    Second one = British

    So obviously, Color will win this.

    Second one is always used in many parts of Canada.

    And so far you have been proven wrong as its tied at 4:4 and I except it to keep a rather 1:1 ratio.

    I've always spelled it 'color', but I don't see why it matters.

    u guyz shud spel it color cuz thet way it saves ink, and that savez paper, and liek, thatz bettar fore teh invierenment and it saves leik 1,00,00,0,0 azn babyz that waye.


    on a serious note, thats how mrs. teacher taught me in elementary school, and it seems more natural to someone who lives in the USA

    the other way isnt wrong, but mrs. teacher probably would have counted "colour" wrong on a spelling test.

    color doesn't rhyme with velour, so it is spelled color.

    Well colour doesn't rhyme with velour either, so it is spelled colour! Although obviously your nationality will probably determine which you think is right.
