To Encode or Not – Base64 Encode

Ever needed a website that is simple, easy-to-use and designed for the Base64 scheme? You just found it: Base64 Encode.

This site really makes your job a lot easier, being able to encode any text to 8 different data type (UTF-8, ASCII, ISO-8859, Windows-1252 to name a few), by typing/pasting it or uploading the file, then pressing the “ENCODE” button. Or, by turning on “Live mode” to get the latest result, whichever suits you.

Everything is self-explanatory: the upper textbox is used for the data waiting to be encoded, while the lower one shows the results. The green button is used to encode said data, while the others let you choose the output charset, turn on Live mode and upload a file. Below the second textbox one can find the details of encoding.

It is the sister-site to Base64 Decode, which works the same way as this one, just reverse, and decodes data instead. Its layout is also the same.

Here it is:

So back to the question – Use this site to encode or not? I think you should.
