On GitHub there is an Explore page (and list of public repositories), where users can explore new interesting, and not so interesting, repositories.

Is there is such page for Bitbucket? I found a post about the same Explore page, but it now redirects to the repository search.

Where can a Bitbucket user go to seek some new, arbitrary (without some keywords) open repository?

News for the addition: blog.bitbucket.org/2011/04/27/…, but its weird that the page was removed even without an announcement... – Hydra Jan 4 '13 at 12:29

Bitbucket had an "Explore" page for some time, but when they completely changed their design a few months ago, unfortunately they dropped the "Explore" page.

I was sad to see it disappear, because at that time, one of my projects was featured there (hand-picked by the Bitbucket team) and gained about 100 followers because of that.

Related issue: browse/explore repos?. – m0nhawk Jan 14 '13 at 18:39
That's from before the design change (July 2012, the design change was in October). This issue here was created right after the design change, and it wasn't the only one (see the duplicates in the comments below). – Christian Specht Jan 14 '13 at 18:42
