- Chakra's color
That's something special to Sasuke, as far as we currently know.
Read my last post.
^ well we know it can see chakra like the byakkugan. But that's about it. Color of chakra is probably sasuke's own ability. Since we've only seen a few sharingan users, we cant really say which ability is truly original or a staple ability of the sharingan. ( aside from copying, seeing chakra, being able to see things moving at high speeds, casting genjutsu, or the mangekyou mode.)
If you want to say that sharingan possesses no precognition. I don't think so.

Of course, that before Kyuubi interfere with its chakra.
By the way, if we consider that Sasuke is only one in the manga that can see chakra's color.
Then we can assume that Obito's sharingan can see movement of chakra but not its color.

Hence calling it movement vision, not precognition.

Perception and Analytical powers
The Sharingan also has a high perception of things around them such as the ability to track and see high-speed objects and attacks (but how good they are at it depends on the user). The Sharingan is capable of reading high-speed seals and taijutsu attacks, and can, to some degree, predict the opponents next move (however this is only a split-second or second earlier).
It can also visually read many movements such as the words written by a moving pencil (Sasuke displayed this in the Chuunin exam) as well as lip-reading (Kakashi mentions this). This ability also allows the user to see through many kinds of genjutsu as well as provide them the understanding to cast genjutsu themselves.
Sharingan users can also cast a unique brand of hypnosis on their opponents, and suggest their next move, subsequently copying it to give the illusion that they can see the future. It can also cast various other hypnotic illusions such as putting them to sleep or even playing on their worst fears. This ability also seems to correlate with their ability to cast genjutsu.
This should probably fall under perception, but I think it's worth a separate mention. Sasuke somehow got into Naruto's mind as Naruto was talking to the Nine-Tails. Somehow, he managed to even talk to the Nine-Tails himself as well as well as Naruto, apparently by just looking at him.
However, it could just be that Sasuke "saw" the chakra inside Naruto and recognized it, and that the chamber that Naruto enters when he talks to the Nine-Tails is simply symbolic; but somehow I don't think so. It seems more as if it is happening in Naruto's mind, and don't forget that Sasuke talked to it too. If this is an ability of the Sharingan, it may be that only a high-level user can apply this sort of ability. We don't have much reference, because almost all the other users are dead.
We see Sasuke use this after he invades Naruto's mind and talks to the Nine-Tails. He simply touches the Nine-Tails (telepathically, I guess), and the Nine-Tails' chakra simply goes back into its seal. This could be because of the Sharingan, or because of the Uchiha blood (Madara supposedly interacted with the Nine-Tails in some way, and perhaps even made a pact with it to be able to summon it( or so Jiraiya implies).
The Sharingan can "see" the movement and flow of chakra, which also helps them with their perception and understanding of jutsu as well as copying it. I know many people say "Oh, Sasuke can see the color of chakra, it's not the same". First let me remind you that when they "see" the chakra, it has to appear to them in some way, such as (yeah, you guessed it) color. They couldn't see it if it didn't have a color of some sort, right? White, blue, red, whatever. I don't know if it sees a universal color or different color, but I think it sees color all right.
So when Sasuke said "My eyes give color to chakra", basically you could interpret that as a more fancy way of saying "I can see chakra".
Casts an unbreakable genjutsu, that seems to be able to last for as long as the user wants (inside the mind of the victim, anyway).
Casts a dark fire that can seemingly burn through anything. Some people say it burns for 7 days and 7 nights, but I'm not sure if it's true.
Well, following the other two techniques, it would fit that there would be a third technique called Susanoo. I'm not sure if Kakashi's technique could be called Susanoo (it could also be Amaterasu, just without the flames. Remember, we have never seen Amaterasu used on-screen, just the effect. It could be that it sucks the target into another dimension and leaves the flame (read that in the Tengu Theory)).
That's it for now I guess.
Chakra color probably means the nature of the chakra. This would aid in knowing what nature of chakra is needed even if the jutsu's effect is vague. This would also help understand how much of which chakra is needed for a hybrid nature jutsu...
I assume this because of how Sasuke learned what element Deidara was using for his bombs.
...some one go read the winkipedia.
I don't think so. I think it is said in the chapter (I forgot which chapter) that sharingan give color to chakra but sasuke could tell that deidara uses earth chakra because of the seal that deidara uses to perform his jutsus. The same way kakashi could tell that kakuzu's iron skin jutsu is using earth type chakra (by seeing it). Sasuke said it himself that when fighting a sharingan user, the thing that you should do is to hide your hands while performing hand seals, because if the hand seals are seen then the sharingan user could learn the jutsu and could either use the jutsu against the iniator or finds its weaknesses.

Because kakashi knows the side effect, does this mean that kakashi also know how to control the kyuubi with his mangekyou???
