QR Generator for Internet Explorer

Each time while browsing the web I came along a phone number I’d like to call, I had to type it on my phone number-by-number carefully.
Therefore, I went for a search to find a working IE Search Provider (Accelerator) for generating QR codes to no avail.
So, I’ve decided to put together useful pieces I did find, and make my own.

  1. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I’ve been looking for this. I use this to convert delivery tracking number in to QR codes so I can scan them into my package tracking app on my phone. Worked like a charm. You sir are a scholar and a gentleman.
