Is not entirely clear why this tool is between the search engines, but whatever. This is the last in the list.

WhatWeb examines the fingerprint of web servers. When you open a web page, you can obtain a lot of information from the server, webapplications, content management systems (CMS), etc. ... the list is quite long.

The program has about 250 plugin, which can identify all kinds of content. If there is something, which you can't find, you can write your own. It has quite a few options, but by default, the run is pretty simple:

root@bt:/pentest/enumeration/www/whatweb# ./whatweb

From this example, we can reveal that this page is running on a GSE web server.
