I was wondering if there will be possibility to sort questions list in stackoverflow by answers number, votes number, date, or anything else ?

Is there any possibility to specify ASC or DESC just by clicking ?

You already can do this.

There is no way to sort by answer count (that seems pointless) but you can search "answers:n" and get questions with n or more answers.

Other helpful sorting schemes:

You can sort by date (newest), and by votes already, just click on the big handy tabs.

There is not much use for sorting by answer count, I don't think. You cannot reverse the sort; just click through to the last page of the batch instead, most visitors would not need to reverse the sort. What use is the most downvoted question, really?

Only if you want to find the most non-constructive question on all of SO. =) – J. Steen Feb 5 '13 at 13:50
:) not really the most downvoted but maybe the most upvoted and with Zero answers – jramby Feb 5 '13 at 14:10
@jramby: use the unanswered tab for that. :-) – Martijn Pieters Feb 5 '13 at 14:11
I find the most downvoted questions fascinating and entertaining. Remember "How to iterate over all possible GUIDs?" (now deleted). That was a great read. And the most downvoted meta questions are pretty good as well. – mikeTheLiar Feb 5 '13 at 14:19
@mikeTheLiar: I don't. Not most. Luckily they get cleaned up pretty quickly. The GUID iteration question was entertaining, but only because noone could believe the OP was really that thick.. – Martijn Pieters Feb 5 '13 at 14:20
