PR QR Barcode Extension for Google Chrome #3

On Saturday I sent a first usable version of my Chrome extension to my supervisor for reviewing. The feedback included some hints for usability improvements and how to deal with q.:-Code in the extension. Now, after creating a QR code, a little popup window appears containing the QR code and two radio buttons allowing the user to change encoding (plain <-> q.:-Code) of the payload of the QR code on-the-fly. In previous versions I used a browser tab to display the QR code and additional information. This tab is still available, but has to be explicitly opened by the user using the menu entry in the browser action popup of the extension.

So after creating a QR code the browser looks like this:

Next I will work on content scripts, so that the extension will be able to work with Microformats embedded in webpages.
