    Neat, but I still find firefox sync nicer to use. Being able to transfer URLs without having to touch your phone is what I like the most about it.

      Yeah, the ability to pass pages to your device without using both devices at the same time is really handy in Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. My use case for the QR code’s is when someone else is working with me and I can’t “cast” the link to them. It’s super handy to be able to just convert it to a QR code and let them scan it. Not something I use all the time but perfect when I need it. Plus the privacy aspect is nice too.

        I know your not implying this is the case but your individual use case does not invalidate the utility of this feature.

        I’d imagine this would be fairly trivial to implement this feature with Tridactyl’s native messenger.

          I’d imagine this would be fairly trivial to implement this feature with Tridactyl’s native messenger.

          If you’re talking about generating QR codes from URLs, there wouldn’t even be a need to use the native messenger, everything could be done in the content script. In comparison, firefox-sync integration would be near impossible to implement (that’s why most issues about it are closed :( ).

        I think chrome[ium] has this feature. At least the dev version of Chrome does. A little icon pops up for me in the URL bar that let’s me generate a QR code from the URL.
