I am interested in an ad I saw on Stack Overflow, but I didn't catch its URL. It might have been an open source project, or some great product for programmers; all I know is that it showed up randomly and had a great icon.

Is there a place where I can see all the ads that have recently run on Stack Overflow?

As for the commercial paid ads, we don't yet have a way to browse those, but we are looking at it...
