Actually looking at that link allowed me to download the extension. Perhaps the main Github page should be more transparent about where to go and where to click to download the damn thing.

Off-topic:
It used to be (IMO) more so, but GitHub rearranged the design over the last few days and stuck some things in a right-hand sidebar, including the link to Releases, that used to be straightforwardly visible in the repository's menu-bar. At a guess, they're trying to make the site more mobile-oriented. :/ You can see here what the front page used to look like only four days ago.

Btw for info, there is a also link to releases on the main page in README.md, below the heading Compatibility and installation.

That's unbelievable. By far the biggest audience to Github would be from that of PC users, not a damn smart device. Granted there's apk's but the majority of code there is PC centric. Leave it to M$ to muck up what was a good thing. It's like they have a love for all things mobile hence why Windows 8 and 10 look like GUI crap.

Years out of date and will probably break FB now. Better off using the Greasemonkey script version that they also provide.

Hey, I didn't say it was a good idea. It just seems like they are looking to build a definitive archive.

This is more of a general statement, but there is no such thing as a definitive or a complete collection, when there are so many things to collect.

Thanks so much for the update. I though it was down for good after like 2 weeks of "downtime".

Bug in Related Categories links

When you click on a related category, you don't really get proper extensions list.

Example: caa:addon/wikilook

WikiLook extension has 2 related categories: Language Support, Search Tools.
But if you hover your mouse cursor over these links you can see:
caa:list/categorylanguage-support
caa:list/categorysearch-tools

They don't work, because correct links are:
caa:list/language-support
caa:list/search-tools

Could you fix this globally?

Thanks for reporting, fixed in CAA 2.0.3.
Here are the add-ons I made in a spare time. That was fun!

I just found this as I was searching for an XPI version of the last classic "Google search link fix" extension.

Just wow, that archive is really useful, thanks for creating and maintaining it!

You ever gonna reindex so that stored metadata for min/max versions actually match the install manifest?
