Made possible with the following JavaScript librarys:

How to get it

You can get the latest version here.

How to install

Since I have not put it in the Chrome Store yet, you can't install it from the link. Once the download it complete, open the Extension page by going to Toos/Extensions. Then drage and drop the Link2QR.crx file into the extension page. When it asks if you want to install it click Yes.

Why?

Well, the idea came to me when I was trying to get some new wallpapers on my iPhone from imgur. Someone had posted a gallery of over 200 wallpapers, and I wanted to get a few. But how was I going to get them onto my phone? I could copy the source urls and e-mail them to my self, or I could just download them one by one and transfer them over using iTunes. Or I could brows to gallery using my phone and then go through them one by one, but again how to get the gallery URL to my phone? There just wasn't a simple, one step way of doing this. So I thought...why not use a QR code? I could just use an app already on my phone to scan it, and it would load in the web browser for me, all in one shot!

So I created a simple extension, where it adds a new menu item to the context menu when you right click on a link or image. Click it and a popup comes up with the QR generated for you, all in JavaScript!
