How do I browse popular/recent instructables in all categories?

I just visited the instructables main page, and I wanted to just browse some popular instructables from the last few weeks or so.  However, I can't seem to find a  way to do this.  From what I can tell, the main page seems to force me to browse only within a certain category.  Maybe I'm missing something.

How do I look at a list of recent & popular instructables?  Is there a way to browse without having to choose a category first?

Thanks!

Thanks! I also found this: click on a category, like "Food", and that brings you to the normal listing page. Then you can click on "All", then you can click on "popular" or "recent".

That's still a lot of hoops for something so simple. But at least there's a way.
If you choose to 'go pro' there is a 'short cuts' tab on the top of the page (I don't remember ever seeing it before I became pro) where in the settings section of your profile you can select 'recent Instructables'... I have it configured so that it gives me recent forum posts, recent i'bles and random i'bles

It's a handy little tab for browsing the site

On your profile page, go to Settings -> Customize. In the "Shortcuts" pulldowns, look for the "EXPLORE" section, and choose either Recent or Popular as you wish. -- Michael Kelsey P.S. I posted this as a reply to your forum topic, but it's stuck in the filters for some reason.

It works... that "Shortcuts" link on the top, next to "Inbox", now has a dropdown with those two links.

But why the heck aren't these on the home page to begin with? It's really boggling my mind.

P.S. Bookmark those two links if you don't want to change your profile.
