Now a days their are numerous web technologies trending over the internet, which are more flexible, secure & more attractive than ancestors. In day to day lifestyle we explore many websites having attractive looks with complex functionalities implemented in really simple manner.This kind of situation stop-us to think about “Which technology is used to develop this website?” isn’t it?.
If you are familier with web development then you can partially identify this scenario by looking at “View Page Source”,but belive me due to availability of diversifying web technologies its hard for us to exactly identify technology used behind any web-page/site. Their are limitation while identifying “View Page Source”.
Limitation of “View Page Source” :
2. Complex, manual and time consuming process.
3. Depends on human knowledge.
If you really want to automate this complex process with most accurate result start using “Wappalyzer“, a great browser add-on which will do this task for free of cost 🙂
Wappalyzer is designed in such a way that it can automatically detect the content & call of webpages,then according to it’s algorithms it will show you everything about that page/site. Wappalyzer is available for google chrome & mozilla firefox. I personally using this add-on from long time and this is one of the best add-on.
Features of Wappalyzer:
1. Automatic processing.
2. Show client and server side technology details.
3. Can show frameworks/CMS name in result using their massive updating database.
4. Show surety percentage in result.
