option to lock “interesting tags” section so 'x' isn't hit accidentally on a tag
Favorite Tags buttons need more padding

It does often happen to me that I delete one of my favourite tags unintentionally, especially when the actual tag contains up to three letters like: c, c#, css, etc., you can tell easily that I am not a 3d shooter person, but tag-based navigation could definitely be amended. As deletion is rare in comparison to displaying all the question with the particular tag maybe we should have some sort of a timer, say 500ms on mousehover event for displaying the deletion prompt or anything else that could make favourite tags less prone to unintended deletion.

It happens. But, I usually am able to add the tags right back in. They're out of order for a bit, but they're still there... – Makoto May 22 '12 at 15:03
