Humans.txt is a new standard in use by Google, Flickr, and many grassroots web developers. It’s a way to recognize the humans who made a website, and the tools they used.
This extension shows an icon in the address bar for sites using humans.txt, so you can discover it’s available. Click on the icon to see the humans.txt file. Try it on http://humanstxt.org or http://google.com for example.
Extension by Michael Mahemoff, Player FM (http://player.fm) and originally created while at Google.

Update March 31, 2011
Thanks for all your Twitter feedback since I launched this yesterday! The tool now filters for “text/plain” content types, which will remove a few false positives. It also now checks for humans only once per origin, instead of on every page load, and will respect port numbers too.
