    You can always just take a look at the source code of a page to see plugins that render on the page.
    In Chrome, you can right click on the element you want to know about, and then select "Inspect element".
    From here you can see the class definition within a div, span or p element. From here it will usually give itself away. If not just google for it.
    Below is some source code for the Share This plugin. When I google for the class (stMainServices), a lot of results for Share This come up.

    Code:
    <span style="background-image: url(&quot;http://w.sharethis.com/images/twitter_counter.png&quot;);" class="stMainServices st-twitter-counter">&nbsp;</span>
