(U)niversally (R)elatable (L)ament – URL Decode

Having trouble with URL decoding (or “Percent-decoding”)? Can’t find a site dedicated to it? Especially one that is easy to use? No need to look further, what you are looking for is: https://www.urldecoder.org/.

It works exactly the same way as its sister-site (https://www.urlencoder.org/), only that this one decodes the URL, but uses the same simple design, which makes it easy to handle for every user. There are also full-fledged details for almost everything, but the site is simple enough so it should be easy going.

Just 2 textboxes and 3 buttons, use the latter to upload files, or for instant results, turn on the Live Mode. There’s also a whole list of URL chars used when encoding/decoding, if you’re not sure which char becomes what.

Like the others, you may find other tools and sites for different things. They all use the same pattern, as shown in the picture below.

Here’s the real deal:

I also use this site…why shouldn’t you?

The Art of Decoding – Base64 Decode

Thanks to my work, I often come across encoding and decoding – most of the time with different schemes, but usually Base64. To make my life easier I needed a website that lets me quickly decode any data from said type to not only one, but many other if must. Wasn’t very lucky for a while, but then I found Base64 Decode.

The site itself is simple, but great enough to get the job done: Two textboxes, the upper one for the data awaiting to get decoded, and the lower for the result. 8 different character sets: UTF-8, ASCII, CP1256, ISO-8859-1/2/6/15 and Windows-1252. You don’t even need to press the “DECODE” button every time, it’s enough to turn on the “Live mode” and you’ll always get the newest result. Works well with lots of files, no need to paste everything, just upload the file!

It has a sister-site as well, the same but with encoding, so you don’t have to go too far for that either. Full explanation available, not that it really needs too much, everything is given.

I also liked the layout, easy and simple. I’ve yet to find better, definitely left a “Like” there.
