URL2QR: A bookmarklet to turn any URL into a QR Code

(1 minute read)

How many times have you been developing a mobile website only to find out that you actually have to type in your horrible development URL into your mobile phone? Well moan no longer with the handy-dandy URL2QR. All you have to do is add this bookmarklet to your browser and what ever page you visit will be turned into a QR code for you to scan with your phone!

Bookmarklet   —->   URL2QR

In short, this bookmarklet will take the URL of what you are browsing and bounce it off a Google API and produce a QR code for any mobile device to take a picture of and present you the link so you just have to click on it.

Note: This is a repost from an old blog that I worked on but I don’t think the old blog will remain in service much longer.
