  1. I’m not easily impressed. . . but that’s irmpessing me! 🙂

  2. You can also use to list any plugins it can detect. It does more than just search for references to ‘plugin’, so it picks up quite a few additional plugins.

  3. some websites code their sites and it becomes very difficult to identify the plugings

  4. well well. great way to spy people plugins. thanks

  5. This is a very neat trick for people like me, who concentrate more on other websites instead of mine. Thanks for the tip.

  6. This is not enough. This trick will not work for every blog.
