Where can I see a table of popular tags ordered by their number of followers?

I ask because I believe a tag's popularity should be judged by its number of followers rather than number of uses. Some tags (such as 'string' and 'image') are used frequently but have very few followers. See Pointless tags (small ratio of subscribers to uses)

data explorer might be able to do that – Ben Brocka Jun 7 '12 at 11:18
@BenBrocka: I checked, that information is not currently available in the data explorer. Neither does the API. – Martijn Pieters Aug 8 '12 at 8:40

Using the Tags button, you have the tags ordered by popularity with their count.

If you mouseover a tag name, you are able to see the number of followers for it.
