New Google Chrome version of the QR Code Generator extension

Chrome Extension - QR Code Generator

Back in February I created a Safari Extension to generate QR codes from the current URL. I’ve just completed coding an alternate version for Google’s Chrome Browser.

When installed, the extension creates a new button on the browser toolbar. Clicking the button will open a popup containing a QR barcode generated from the URL of the current open tab. The barcode can then be scanned by any compatible device.

QR Code Generator Widget

I’ve coded a QR Code Generator widget for Mac, which as usual can be downloaded from my downloads page. Basically it uses the Google Chart Tools to turn any string in to a QR code. You can use it to encode URLs, vCards or well, anything you want. The resulting QR Code is ready to be scanned by any mobile device with a camera & decoding software.

I realize not everyone is using Mac OS X, so I’ve included a plain old HTML / Javascript version in this post ↓
