How can one sort questions on Stack Overflow by number of views? I'd find this useful.

Views and votes are sometimes very different.

This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

Oops I asked on webapps.stackexchange.com because I thought that community might have a different answer. –  Colonel Panic Mar 27 '13 at 1:25
Hey! I saw all of that. :) But I'll pretend I didn't. :D –  Mysticial Mar 27 '13 at 1:25

There isn't any built-in feature to view questions sorted by views.

But you can use this Data Explorer query.

Brilliant, thanks! That website is really cool. –  Colonel Panic Mar 27 '13 at 1:25
@ColonelPanic The data explorer is quite handy and this probably is the best (and possibly is the only) way for you to achieve this. However, you should be aware that if a question doesn't appear, it may be because it's too new--the Data Explorer doesn't cover SE in real-time; it uses snapshots instead. According to its FAQ, the snapshots are taken monthly. –  Eliah Kagan Mar 27 '13 at 1:41
