My feature-request: There should be a way to search for multiple tags at once (A OR B, rather than A AND B) from the GUI

Reason: When looking for interesting questions asked while I was gone, I will follow this procedure:

  1. Click on newest
  2. Click on one of my interesting tags
  3. Open a number of links, scrolling down until I find one that I've seen before
  4. Click on the next interesting tag
  5. Open a number of links, scrolling down until I find one that I've seen before
  6. ...

Not only do I have to try to remember which questions I've seen before, but some of them have two of my interesting tags, so that something I've "seen before" I actually first saw a minute or two ago.

[Edit] A simple thing would be make the "Interesting Tags" header link to a page that displays all posts that have one of your interesting tags.

You could manually construct your url.

This is the one I use:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged?tagnames=perl~+~regex~+pcre+or+language-agnostic+or+parse+or+rosetta-stone+or+code-golf&sort=active

Then I'd like there to be a way of saving/editing these groups of tags on the site, rather than having to save a bunch of bookmarks and edit them manually whenever I wanted to change a tag-grouping. –  BlueRaja Jan 27 '10 at 17:34
