Today I want to tell you about a tool that’s become almost indispensable to me as a web developer. And if you’re not a web developer you might find this handy as well. It’s called Wappalyzer and it’s a free plugin for Firefox. What it allows you to do is view at a glance all the underlying technology used on a website. It displays all this information as little icons up in your address bar. Take a look at a list of all the things it can identify on their website.
The easiest way to get Wappalyzer is to install it via the Add-ons page on Firefox and type it into the search box. Firefox does all the rest. Give it a try.
Disclaimer: I only use Wappalyzer for Firefox browser. I can’t say how it works with all the rest. But if you’re into web development you already know Firefox is the best, right?
