I am not a new member for Stack Overflow, but i'm new to Meta. I want to know where are the new questions located on the site ?

Are they in here:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions

or here:

http://stackoverflow.com

And what is the difference between these above two locations?

At www.stackoverflow.com is a list of the questions that the algorithm has deemed 'interesting':

main

At /questions, the newest questions reside:

The tabs at the top of each page also allow you to change the sort order - 'featured' is the questions with bounties, for example. These tabs actually remember the last selected tab, and automatically select it.

  • almost; this is the default sort, I think. You can change them both, if you wish, too. Commented May 20, 2013 at 17:48
  • @AndrewBarber Yep - I just wanted to proved the simplest possible solution - Neither the OP nor I am a power user like you mods...

  • @Undo just worth to mention that the site "remembers" the last selected tab as it's causing confusion to new users. Commented May 20, 2013 at 18:11
  • @Sha Huh. I was one of those users. Thanks!
