Smart QrCode Generator: Generate QR codes for URLs and images in Google Chrome

When it was seen that smartphones will soon become popular devices for people to access the internet from, developers started to come up with convenient ways for people to access online content through their smartphones. Because URLs were too long and inconvenient to type on a phone, QR codes were invented and they have been serving countless smartphone owners ever since. All a smartphone user has to do is scan these codes and be taken to the encoded URL in their phone’s browsers. This helps people who want to transfer URLs from their computer to their phone. All they have to do is generate a QR code for the website they are browsing on their computer and then scan that code using their phone. Here to help you do this is a tool called Smart QrCode Generator.

Apparently, the QR Code was not invented to enable URLs on smartphones. According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QR_codes, the system was invented in Japan to support the automotive industry.

So developers turned to an existing technology to use it in an originally unintended way to make URLs easily accessible to smartphone users. Nevertheless a smart move.
