duri.me is a super simple dataURI tool.

A Data URI is a Uniform Resource Identifier scheme that provides a way to include data (in duri.me’s case images) in-line in websites as if they were an external resource.

To put it simply, a Data URI is a base64 version of an image that is included in a file and is fetched in a single HTTP request, the one that downloads the site file.
