Before I used to see questions that had a lot of activity (many updates to Q's or A's) but may not have had a high view count. Now the list just seems to be dominated by the "super questions" with > 100k views that just happened to have a update within the last few days.
I don't like the new formula. It has turned the "Hot" tab into something like the "Week" or "Month" tab. As of right now there are only 4 questions on the "Hot" tab that has less than 10k views and the smallest one of those has 4k. What I expect to see is questions similar to what I would see in the Stack Exchange "Hot Questions" drop-down but filtered to only the site you are on, not the questions with the most views that happen to have updated recently.
This algorithm change seems to have affected all Stack Exchange sites, Super User is worse than Stack Overflow, In the top 5 "Hot" questions the most recently modified one was done 8 days ago and the number 1 slot has not been modified in the past 25 days.
