This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Is there any specific reason you made an exact duplicate of the existing question? – slhck Apr 8 '13 at 12:07

Google Chrome has a plugin called Chrome Sniffer, you can use this to determine most if not all of the used JavaScript libraries and web frameworks. Unfortunately I do not know any equivalent of it in Firefox.

Easy enough to install another browser though +1 – Amicable Apr 8 '13 at 11:25

In Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer 9 you can use F12 to view the code (Firefox is a plugin you must install called Firebug).

Unless the software comments out where it came from though, I don't believe you can tell what software made the page. Or do you just want to know the underlying technologies?

You don't need Firebug. In fact, the majority of the tools Firebug offers have been integrated for a while now. It's accessible through the Web Developer menu, and the main toolbar can be opened with Shift + F2. Or you could right click on any page and click View Page Source, which applies for all aforementioned browsers. – Bob Apr 8 '13 at 11:35
Or use control-u to view the page source with needed a mouse. That works in every graphical browser I ever used, except for IE. – Hennes Apr 8 '13 at 11:41
