    It works on IE10 and IE11 now! The project page now includes a lot more info based on each repository's most recent commit (e.g., commit message, author, timestamp). The marketplace listing here has not been updated to use screenshots from the latest version, so here's a live example: http://vm.bit-booster.com/bitbucket/projects/BB [Full disclosure: I wrote the PR that fixes IE10+ and brings this enhancement. More info here: https://bitbucket.org/sbechter/stash-repository-description/pull-requests/2/make-columns-sortable-and-make-it-work-on/diff Thanks to Stephan for merging it!]

    Thank you for this add-on! This is the one of the most useful add-ons for a company with a huge number of repositories. :) A bit sad of the fact that the "Description" column is not displayed in IE 11 as previously reported by Johannes Kilian.. are you planning to fix this bug in future releases?

    Nice little plugin. Is there a way to retrieve the description programmatically using REST for example?

    Thank you for the information. I will try to test it on IE10. It's a little bit difficult because i'm using only linux.. ;-)
