No, at the moment there's no result browsing: Popular and newest are 
fixed 20 entries, search results are not truncated, but I *expect* most 
search results are not much longer than 20 (even if you look for news or 

I don't see the point in making the top-20 lists browseable. Seriously, 
who's interested in the 20-40 places of most popular extensions except 
their authors? If you're interested in the download numbers, they're 
there in single view. TER2 is not a prom queen election...

(Have I written this before?) Compact lists display and are sortable by 
title, extensionkey, lastupload, status. Sorting by manual link does not 
make much sense I guess. Rating will come, also as sorting column. I am 
aware of the redundancy in last upload and rating, but at least the 
newest exts are supposed to be new major releases IIRC, so there are 
different results to expect. Have not looked at it though...

List available extensions, both reviewed and unreviewed?
