Firefox Extensions Website

It seems like the the firefox extensions website has changed, and it’s become quite a disappointment. It used to be easy to quickly skim the list of new extensions, with their summaries, and check whether anything worth installing had become available.

But, not now. Mozilla only list the most recent extensions, but to see anything more than the name, you have to click them one-by-one, which is ridiculous. To add insult to injury, the ‘Recently Updated’ header links to the RSS feed, rather than display the list a HTML in your browser.

Maybe I’m missing something here, but I’ve tried figuring out where to find a list of new extensions ordered descending, and can’t find it, so either it’s been removed, or there are some serious usability issues there, which Firefox haven’t thought about.

I’m sure I’m not the only person who checks the site for newest extensions, and by removing this feature, Mozilla has made it significantly harder to see these. I’m very disappointed. Hope they put this feature back.
