QR Codes Without a Camera–Use Google Chrome


QR codes need to be read by camera phones or webcam and that can be a problem.  Thanks to a entry by one of my most favorite techies, Richard Byrne of Free Technology for Teachers, there is a solution to that problem.

QRreader (beta) is a Google Chrome extension that allows you to use your browser to decode QR codes. With QRreader installed when you come to a QR code on the web you can simply right-click on it to decode it. If the QR code is for a webpage, the page will open in a new tab. If the QR code is for text, it will open in a text dialogue box.

Note:  Just another reason to use Google Chrome as a browser. 🙂
