Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

The top page of Stack Overflow has the tabs Interesting and Hot, which I understand as 'the reverse order of time questioned,' and 'the reverse order of time of some activity on it', but when I filter the questions with a tag, the tab labels change to Newest and Active, which I understand to mean the same thing. Is my understanding correct? If so, why are the labels different? If there is no particular reason, I would prefer them to be unified.

These are indeed different from Newest and Active.

Thanks. I didn't know that. So there is no way to see all the questions in the reverse time order without filtering with some tag? – sawa Mar 23 '11 at 16:12
