It’s pretty close; but it’s not the same at all.
To wit: What I would do, on a weekly basis, is check which new extensions had been added (not updated; but added). I would start from the newest and work my way down until I saw the one that I’d left off with, the previous week.
In doing this, I encountered new extensions I might never have even thought to look for.
Now, I have to go through many more entries (because the number of updates far exceeds the number of brand new extensions.
So, I haven’t checked in the past few weeks. This means, I’m checking far fewer new extensions (and, rather than taking a chance on something new; I just won’t even see it).
What I’d like to see is a sort option by “newest added” (and, IIRC, this was taken away a few years ago; and brought back (because it was a bad idea back then, too). And, a date of creation (and/or update) with each extension.
In other words: like Simple Machines Forum does it: https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?action=search;type=0-;sort=submitted;desc
