The Google Chrome QR code extension. Generate offline QR Code with ONE CLICK! Scan QR Code in image with ONE CLICK! This extension allows users to generate/scan offline QR Code for the current page quickly.

Please note that this extension, unlike others, doesn't require any special permissions. And it's only loaded when you click on the icon. So it doesn't need any unnecessary memory while not used.

And also note, that the QR code is generated completely offline. The URL of the page you visited will not sent over the network (except when you click on "Custom QR Code"). So it's probably as good as it gets regarding privacy and security.

To generate the QR Code after installing extension, just click the QR Code icon on the top-right of your browser window.
