What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

I was going to ask for a feature that locks the question offset once you browsed into question pages (page 2, page 3, etc) but I see that this has already raised before, see Suggestion to make newest questions browse more useful and Option to keep pagination fixed as you are browsing

So if SO is (one of? The only) site affected by such high question volumes, how do you browse new questions?

I mean, yes, I can use tags and only browse questions with my tags, but what about the benefit of seeing questions outside my usual areas of interest?

(I guess that reloading the main page, which will show pages of unseen questions if I take long enough to read them all, is only slightly different from browsing older and older questions... :-) )

just click on the logo or questions item and see if the title takes your intereset? Eventually, mark some tags as favourite to see them easialy –  Wouter J Mar 9 '13 at 19:30
    
I was wondering more about browsing all questions without having to use tags. I tried browsing by page, but if I took too long, the next page contained all the questions I had just read, due to all the new questions that had been asked in the mean time. –  KevinM Mar 9 '13 at 19:38
    
well, scanning the headings doesn't take that long, doesn't it? –  Wouter J Mar 9 '13 at 19:39
    
No, scanning headings doesn't, but reading the interesting questions that remain - on a 'phone and a slow wifi link sure does! ;) –  KevinM Mar 9 '13 at 19:47
    
Well, I prefer to browse it my way. Your mileage may vary. –  dmckee Mar 9 '13 at 22:19

So open the ones that sound interesting in a new tab, or favorite them, or bookmark them, or whatever, and read them as you have time. StackOverflow can't bend time for you - either you have time to find and read all of the questions that might interest you, or you don't...

F5, all the time. If you want more, look at different places For example, I often browse these three places:

  • homepage (click the SO logo)
  • newest questions (questions -> newest)
  • tags that I know stuff in (, , etc)

Again, F5 is the magical key.
