A quick post to share some bookmarklets I made.
I’ve found QR-code “2D barcodes” really handy when playing with my Android phone.
Sometimes, I have a web page open on my desktop PC, and I want to quickly load it in the Android Chrome browser to see what it looks like. Rather than re-typing it with my thumbs, the Barcode Scanner application allows me to scan a QR-code from the screen of my computer, and if the decoded text contains a URL, open it in the Android browser.
These two bookmarklets turn the URL of the current page that is open in your browser into a scannable QR-code:
Google Charts API based bookmarklet: Drag this link –>Current URL to QR-code to your bookmarks toolbar.
They both do the same thing, so you probably only want one. Only tested on Firefox.
