Why isn't it a tab for sorting by the number of answers that a question has?

Not sure what the use case would be for this -- maybe it's worth elaborating why you'd want to? –  Rowland Shaw Oct 10 '09 at 13:39

It would be some sort of a measure of knowledge-popularity about the question... and easier to find and answer questions with few answers. –  luvieere Oct 10 '09 at 14:33

You can make the search shake its tail feather for you and query for questions based on the minimum answers posted.

If you wanted to see questions tagged [jquery] with at least five (5) answers:

[jquery] answers:5

If you wanted at least 15 answers:

[jquery] answers:15

+1 for this, I knew about it, but nonetheless, it's a useful answer for other users that might be wondering how to do that. However, it doesn't answer my question as to why there isn't a tab for that. –  luvieere Oct 10 '09 at 15:48
    
Oh definitely doesn't answer your question, but comes as close. –  random Oct 11 '09 at 0:35
    
This is a pretty cool url hack - but IMHO should have appropriate widgets to control it. –  javamonkey79 Nov 15 '10 at 17:16
