When you need to generate QR codes for text snippets and URLs, the QR Code Generator extension for Google Chrome and Chromium can come in rather handy.

Once installed, the extension adds a button to the main toolbar. Click on it, and QR Code Generator creates a QR code for the URL of the currently viewed web page. You can then use the text area below to enter whatever text you want, and the extension automatically generates a QR code for the typed text. Click on the QR code, and you can download it as a PNG image to your machine. To do that, right-click on the image, choose Save Image As, and replace the default gen.php name with the desired name followed by the .png file extension.
