Using a File to Base64 Converter in Cross-browser Testing
A file to base64 converter can be useful if you're doing cross-browser testing. For example, if you're using
btoa()functions in your code and your code has to run in older browsers, then these functions won't work as they are relatively new. With this tool, you can convert a tiny image or a music file to base64 and use it in various browser tests. Several other use cases are transmitting binary data over GET requests (in URLs) as well as sending binary attachments over text medium.
