Comment (by mohammadayoub96):

 Why is there not a way to filter all the plugins by e.g. number of
 downloads and / or number of reviews/ best rated.
 Come on guys! I get that probably the reason for this is because you don’t
 want to give more power to the most popular ones – and you’re trying to be
 fair to new authors – but honestly – it would save so much time for us
 users if we could filter the plugin (and theme) search with some
 additional parameters.
 Having a plugin dependencies list for each plugin could be quite difficult
 to achieve (though it is a great idea) but why can’t we “order by: most
 popular” etc…. Surely that would be fairly easy to implement.
