Is there a way in StackOverflow to filter questions based on my Favorite Tags? (not searching)

Your favourites get highlighted, the ignored ones get hidden. Do you want more than that? –  Flexo May 8 '12 at 16:11
I want to focus only on my Favourite Tags -- I can't see the merit of showing me questions about matters that I don't know. –  Gerardo Lima May 8 '12 at 16:16
Sometimes you'll see mis-tagged things you do know about or learn something interesting. It's easy enough to just read the highlighted titles though. –  Flexo May 8 '12 at 16:17
I feel your pain. I click and click, thinking something good will happen, but I just keep coming back to that Great Page O' Tags. Have yet to figure out what "Favorite Tags" is good for. I just want to see the new questions with my favorite tags. Irritates my sensitive brains. –  Jive Dadson Aug 21 '12 at 2:09

There are two options that may be helpful:

Tag Sets

This page would provide with the feed of all questions based on your user fav tags. You may create your own tag sets.

Custom URL's

Although tag filtering did not work well for me, it seems one can use customized URL to make SO engine properly associate tags with OR operation. This link seems to be quite self-explanatory: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/'c%23'%20or%20'f%23'

Both approaches also support RSS which seems very useful if there are many of those. I have recently eliminated a whole set of individual per-tag subscriptions by replacing all those with a single one.

in the Tag Sets, is it possible to view only questions with favorite tags and which are not ignored? Is it possible to reach the /tagged/ URL via html links? –  Ciro Santilli 六四事件 法轮功 Aug 23 '13 at 22:48
@cirosantilli I couldn't accomplish that. –  bytebuster Aug 24 '13 at 6:08
