A downloadable tool

Bitbucket currently does not display repository descriptions anywhere on the web version, which is a shame.

However, it has an API that repository descriptions can be polled through.

This is a tiny userscript that does exactly that - adds a new column to repository list' tables, requests information for listed repositories, and fills out the column with descriptions.

It does not require any permissions nor authentication, therefore can only display descriptions of public repositories.

Install instructions

A userscript extension such as GreaseMonkey (Firefox) \ TamperMonkey (Chromium) is required to install userscripts.

Once you have one, attempting to download/open the .user.js should bring up an installation dialog.
