Day 264 - A Firefox-Themed QR Code

This is me, reading a Firefox-themed QR Code with my cell phone.

After getting the idea from this excellent blog post, I made a QR code pointing to, sporting a nice little Firefox logo in the middle.

For the geeks among you who would like the 411, this works because QR codes have a certain degree of redundancy for error correction. The logo in the middle is considered an "error" and thus, the rest of the code is used to puzzle together the information in the code anyway.

Try it out with your smart phone (on Android, with an app like Barcode Scanner), it really works!
