QR Code generator extension for Firefox

6 09 2006

I just located an extension for PC-based Firefox browsers that allows automatic generation of a QR Code for the current URL. Here’s a screenshot of the extension in action, integrated with my Flock browser:

Mousing over the word “Barcode” in the bottom right of the browser brings up the page’s QR Code. This allows a QR Code – capable mobile device to “grab” the URL straight off the PC screen for later mobile viewing – like a mobile scrapbook of sites.  I only wish there was an easy way to save the QR Code (e.g. rightclick-and-copy) to paste into other applications on the PC!

A useful review of various 2D Barcode formats is also available on the developer’s personal blog.
