A: 4QR.xyz was originally created by Alexander Reben to encode digital artworks into QR codes.
QR codes with an embedded URL will directly open in a browser when read.
So a website was created to render the data contained in a URL into a browser.
This allows all the data needed to make a webpage to be rendered without that webpage hosted on a server.
It became apparent that the tool itself could be used to create and share small creative web applications
(as well as any other code that a browser can display) is a non centralized way.
The data can be stored in QR codes, link shorteners, NFC cards or the blockchain.
A: This varies by browsers and platforms, but URLs with up to 9999 total characters have been tested as working in desktop chrome.
A: Everything in the site is trimmed down and optimized for bandwidth (at least that's the excuse).
A: Check out the reference page or the GitHub page.
A: No, all code is run locally in the browser of the person who clicked the link.
A: No, since there is no storage of the link, it only exists where it is shared.
