Get a QR-code of the current webpage

I got this idea today after using DuckDuckGo for a while to create QR codes. If you are using DuckDuckGo as your search engine, you can simply enter “qr whatever” to get a QR code which says “whatever”, which is pretty cool. I use it often to get the current website on my PC to my mobile phone.
Even faster is a little bookmark I created to open the current webpage with DDGo and show a QR code of the website’s URL.

Create a new bookmark (should work in any Web browser) and write in the “location” or “URL” field:''+location.href,'_blank');
Whenever you click on the bookmark, your browser will open a new tab with the DDG website and a QR code on the top of the page.

What it looks like in Firefox:
qr code

Remember that DuckDuckGo does not track you or your web searches, so there are no privacy concerns with using it!
