The Top Downloaded Lately section of the Front Page was a module on the Front Page that displayed projects that had been downloaded the most recently. It was added on August 8, 2007, and removed in the renovations of May 31, 2009. There is no longer any way to access a list of highly downloaded projects.
It is unknown why this row was removed, but some suspect it was the result of many users discovering they could download their own projects as many times as they liked. There have been multiple campaigns to return it in the past, as it generally displayed projects of complexity that interested many users. Prior to Scratch 2.0, people always see how many downloads a project has on its page. However, with the new web-based Scratch, downloading projects is unnecessary to modify it and view the scripts, making this row unlikely to ever return.
