A nifty tool for decoding URLs that have been encoded. ...useful when you've encoded a URL and actually want read it!
Use this utility to Decode (or encode) URLs. URL encoding (also known as Percent-encoding) is a mechanism for encoding information in a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). This is a developer utility that allows you to paste (or type) an encoded URL string into a text field and see a decoded version. This is useful if you often deal with encoded URLs and want a quick way to read it.
