URL decoder

URL decoder is a tool that allows you to decode URLs that have been encoded. URLs are often encoded in order to make them compatible with different systems, such as email systems or web browsers. When a URL is encoded, certain characters are replaced with a percent sign followed by a hexadecimal value that represents the character in the ASCII table.

For example, the URL "https://example.com/search?q=hello%20world" is encoded so that the space between "hello" and "world" is represented by %20. The URL decoder takes the encoded URL and converts it back to its original form so that it can be read and used by humans and machines alike.

URL decoding is important when working with web applications that handle user input, such as search engines or web forms. It ensures that special characters are correctly handled and that the data is passed between systems without being corrupted or lost.
