Today at 2:25pm AEST BuiltWith will be 5 years old. The site came out of the idea that you could look up a site and it would tell you what technologies the site would be running (what a site was built with).
Here’s the conversation I had with my friend Chris and how bustaname.com helped me find the name that got me to BuiltWith.com –
Chris never did buy surfinggary.com.
Today BuiltWith is in the top 6000 sites on the internet and we’ve moved from simply providing technology lookups to providing Trends for technology usage on over 140 million websites and have 100’s of customers using various tools that we provide from global companies to startups and universities.
Thanks very much for all of the support and here’s looking forward to the next 5 years!
