I'm in favor of a way to sort extensions inside a category.
In theory it could be done entirely client-side, but let's hear Tobin's opinion on the matter first.
These sorting request threads have been going on for years, and for their valid reasons, the folks who create the extension categories and choose how add-ons are listed are not going to change. The easy alternative is to create a spreadsheet, which you can sort any way you wish.
I did that and posted it back in early March. Go here:viewtopic.php?f=44&t=21585
and download the attachment to the 1st post. I was told my spreadsheet would be out of date within hours. It might have been. But I just compared what I listed then, which was 6.5 months ago, to the list today. There have been about 12 additions and 3 deletions. That is less than 10% of the 188 add-ons on the list in March. So it is not a big task to keep the spreadsheet up to date if one wants to.
I did not list the date each add-on was last updated, but that is just another column.
What user-created spreadsheets do NOT do is notify you if an add-on has been updated. But I find the spreadsheet makes it much easier to look for an add-on to perform a specific function that one might want, rather than guessing what category the Pale Moon staff put it in.
