 Searching for any particular plugins shows the related plugins based on
 the keywords, out of which some old and unmaintained plugins also appear
 in the results which might be a vulnerability issue for their users.

 **Possible Solution:**
 Adding Filters to categorize the results for searchers query:
 1. Latest to Oldest
 2. Oldest to Latest
 3. Most Downloads
 4. Least Downloads
 5. Highest Rated
 6. Lowest Rated

 Adding the filters, rather than completely changing the way the results
 appear (such as: showing the most updated results first, etc) would be
 more useful, and it would be more fair for all publishers/plugin-

 **Possible Improvements:**
 Reducing the risk of downloading incompatible old, untrusted, unmaintained
 plugins leading to vulnerability or other risks in website (business :D).
