Thoughts of an IT expert

Tags: QR code

Published on in 💬 Micro

Currently I use DuckDuckGo (DDG) as my default search engine, especially because I have the feeling that it is quiet fast. But DDG also has many features. For example, you can quickly and easily create a QR code by typing “qr code” + (what should be displayed as QR code).

In the browser you can then right-click on the picture and select “Show picture”. The picture will open. But the image is not stored as JPG or PNG file on a server, but is displayed using a base64 data URI.

I copied this URI and shortened it with my new URL shortener. Whenever I need a QR code that redirects to my website, I can now call https://jlel.se/qr.

I love doing stupid things.
