In current versions of Edge and Chrome browsers, websites can be shared via QR code – how it works.
S.In 2020, Google introduced Canary version 84, a function for sharing websites using the QR code (Quick Response Code). The feature now makes it the standard version of the browser. This also applies to Microsoft’s Chromium-based Edge. But in the current Edge version 88, the functionality is not yet enabled by default. Computer Built shows how to execute and use the QR code function.
Microsoft Edge: Share pages via QR code
As usual, the previously invisible function is hidden behind what is called the flag. To enable it, enter the Edge address bar Margin: // flags / # partition-qr-code-generator
Confirm with Enter. On the page that appears, set the option Run the partition page via QR code
Restart Edge by clicking the button that appears below. If the function is enabled, the browser will show you the code to generate the QR code in the address bar as soon as you click on it. Note: In the new version 88 of Chrome, the QR code generator must already be enabled. If this is not the case then maybe your application need to be activated. Enter Chrome chrome: // flags / # partition-qr-code-generator
Follow the steps above in the address bar and activate it.
After clicking on the QR code icon, the browser generates a corresponding code, which can now be scanned by the smartphone, for example. If you wish, you can save the code as a PNG file by clicking the button Download Tamil.
