Opera's MAMA

Opera is planning to launch a new search engine MAMA of its own kind at the end of the year.
MAMA (Metadata Analysis and Mining Application search engine) is a search engine for developers. It will help developers to identify the technology used behind website. It could help web developer to understand the current market trends.
MAMA crawls the Web, but instead of indexing the content of Web sites, as most search engines do, it discards the content and indexes the types of technologies being used on sites, such as Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), XHTML etc.
MAMA could be the effiective tool for developers and others to identify the market trends for using technologies.
