    This is just something that has passed through my Google Reader listing. It's called MAMA (Metadata Analysis and Mining Application) and is from Opera.

    http://dev.opera.com/articles/view/mama/
    Be sure to at least read through the Key Findings as it gives some highlights of some of their findings. Opera has some great development pages and good efforts like this one. I'm sure the hand coders here will appreciate this reading. Enjoy.

    Don't know about Mama, but Papa's answer would be "porn".

    @angelwatt:

    Interesting stuff. On that page it lists 4 or so benefits to developers and standards miners and seems sensible. I just hope that it could be controlled such as robots.txt (which isn't perfect, but the same concept) so developers can opt to hide certain things, and I wish Google integrated this into their regular search, but included an option to toggle on "Technical Information" or whatever and include it in the results.

    Sure beats the heck out of FFox's Web developer tools since it's all consolidated and processed server side.

    @MrSmith:

    Heh! :cool:
