Opera Develops Search Engine For Web Developers

Soulskill posted more than 5 years ago | from the web-devs-need-love-too dept.

The Internet 31

nk497 writes "The Metadata Analysis and Mining Application (MAMA) doesn't index content like a standard search engine, but looks at markup, style, scripting and the technology behind pages. Based on those existing MAMA-ed pages, 80.4 per cent of sites use cascading style sheets (CSS), while the average web page has 47 markup errors and 16,400 characters. Should you want to know which country is using the AJAX component XMLHttpRequest the most, MAMA can tell you that it's Norway, with 10.2 per cent of the data set." Additional coverage is available at Computerworld, and a deeper explanation is up at Opera's Dev site.

You paid too much.

I want to go on the record as denying all association with the parent troll. It does not meet my exceptionally low standard for Slashdot trolls and does not even mention Russia or Hot Grits.

Re:Frosty Piss (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#25422409)

In Soviet Hot Grits, exceptionally low standard frosty piss trolls mention YOU!

Well, my, I have to say that's quite affordable. I wonder what's your general availability and can your service scale up to meet higher demands.

Oh.. that reminds me, I owe yo mama a nickel.

This is a dup. It's not a very interesting result, either. A list of the most common HTML tags? Big whoop.

Re:We did this yesterday (-1, Offtopic)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#25422685)

What's with the tags on this story?

Notably these: penisfactory, analdildosarefun

Can't the fscking editors read?

hkmwbz (531650) | more than 5 years ago | (#25423117)

Yeah, because knowing what the web is actually made of is completely useless to people and companies who are supposed to be able to handle said web, and need to know what to focus on...

I wonder if it can mine.... (5, Funny)

PsyberS (1356021) | more than 5 years ago | (#25422385)

what percentage of /. articles are dupes. Now that would be useful!

Re:I wonder if it can mine.... (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#25422669)

Oh, that one's way too easy to make the news. 66%. One third are originals, one third duplicates those, and one third duplicates the duplicates.

Re:I wonder if it can mine.... (1)

compro01 (777531) | more than 5 years ago | (#25422943)

What about the duplicates of the duplicates of the duplicates? We need to figure out how many levels of recursion they can achieve.

Ah, it's simple: it's turtles all the way down.

Will MAMA tell you why you still live in her basement? This would be astonishingly useful for the entire slashdot population.
MAMAing (as in googling) these things is priceless.

Yo (3, Funny)

iamapizza (1312801) | more than 5 years ago | (#25422605)

Yo! MAMA's so slow, she had to post on slashdot twice to get her point across.

The /. tagging system is borked. Look at all the recent tagtrolls.

What, are you disputing the fact that anal dildos are fun?

Re:OFFTOPIC RANT (1)

mdwh2 (535323) | more than 5 years ago | (#25426301)

On that note, the tagging system doesn't seem to work at all in Opera, IE or Chrome anymore - only Firefox. The tags can't be seen or added to. (I know this is Slashdot, but we don't all use Firefox...)

Re:OFFTOPIC RANT (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#25426459)

Not true - I can see the tags in Opera on Linux.

Re:OFFTOPIC RANT (1)

mdwh2 (535323) | more than 5 years ago | (#25426999)

In Opera 9.02 on Windows, I can see tags, but not add my own.

In IE6, I can't see or add tags.

In Chrome, I can sort of see tags, but they're a bit jumbled up, and I can't add my own.

(I know, I should get round to submitting a bug, though I'm curious if it's not been noticed - it's not my single machine, this occurs on both my machines, and my work PC.)

Maybe I'm stupid, but I can't find a link anywhere to this MAMA search engine.

Re:Maybe I'm stupid... (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#25426079)

Unless I'm still stupid, that's a link to a blog entry about how great the MAMA search engine is, without a link to the search engine itself.

Google (0)

Its interesting to note that Google calls their internal company search engine Mama.

Steed, Peel & King calls theirs Mother, speaking of antique fedora.
