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.

Twitter has a nice feature to save searches so you can quickly access them quickly in the sidebar.

It would be nice to have something like that for SO/MSO/SU/SF.

Instead of having to type in my search, like

[discussion feature-request only-awesome-features]

in the search box every time, I could save them as a search preset and access them in my prefs in a tab called "Favorite searches" or something like that.

Even better, the saved searches would be available in the site's sidebar, e.g. under related tags.

EDIT: I know, the search is not the best, but searching for certain tags or groups of tags (in the syntax: [tag1 tag2 tag3]) actually works ok, IMO. That's what I want to use it for, searching for certain groups of tags.

You can always bookmark the search page in your browser.

... and by the way, do you really use SO search? Everyone knows it sucks.

I see what you are saying. Bookmarking basically works, but is only accessible from the machine bookmarked on, unless I use del.icio.us or something. –  cschol Jul 21 '09 at 12:29

SO's search works reasonably well for tags, or other special-purpose operators (user:, etc.). But yeah, a saved keyword search sounds about pointless. –  Shog9 Oct 9 '09 at 21:37
