WhatRuns – Discover What Runs a Website

WhatRuns shows you pretty much everything that powers a website. Web apps they pay for, CDN they’re hosted on, how they track their visitors, WordPress plugins, fonts – you name it! Not just that – you can follow websites so that you get notified when they use new technologies or remove existing ones.

Every technology leaves a pattern on the websites it is being used. WhatRuns’ algorithm recognizes these patterns to detect the tech stack of a particular website. The extension detects almost everything that runs a website – frameworks, web technologies, CMSs (and its plugins), themes and fonts to name a few categories.

This extension will be useful during a penetration testing where the user need to have the type of application used without making a full scan of the web server. It is not just during the penetration testing but also to track any update and change on the targeted system.
