(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?

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

To make an URL portable it needs to be normalized into something that is universally understood, so different browsers will know what it’s made of, since it could be of any data (Latin-1, Unicode, etc). For those who have to encode URLs regularly, a site dedicated to it is a must.

One such site is https://www.urlencoder.org/ (URL Encode). Its simple design makes it easy to handle for everyone: a textbox for the raw URL and another for the encoded version. There is a “Live mode” which immediately converts it into the encoded format. If it’s a file, you can upload it via the “UPLOAD FILE” button.

If you need help, there’s a full explanation in the bottom of the page, including the definition, types of URI characters, reserved and undreserved chars, arbitrary data, binary data, character data, and even more!

There is also a site for URL decoding, so if you have any to decode, check it out @ the “Other tools” tab. It’s just as great as this one. Trust me.
