Set Generator Tag plugin allows you to change to default Joomla! generator meta tag to anything you like! With this plugin you do not have to modify neither template's nor Joomla!'s core files. Install it, configure it and you are ready!
So far, the most common way to change the generator meta tag is to modify the index.php file of your current template. But if you change template then you will have to modify the new index.php file again. Set Generator Tag does not depend on templates nor it modifies any of their files. Feel free to change as many templates as you want. The generator meta tag will remain intact.
Another way to change the generator meta tag is to modify a Joomla!'s core file. But by doing so you are risking of losing the modification when you upgrade Joomla! to a newer version. No more worries with the Set Generator Tag.
For those who do not know what the generator tag is, it is presented below.
