It uses Google's API call, and all you have to do is append what you want to this URL:

https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chs=150x150&cht=qr&chl=

So if you want to create a QR code for Lifehacker, it would be:

https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chs=150x150&cht=qr&chl=http://www.lifehacker.com.au

You can adjust the "150x150" to get the size you want (but make sure both numbers are the same to keep the square aspect ratio), while the appended text at the end can be anything from a link to a slogan.

To quickly access this URL in the future, just add it to your bookmarks bar.
