Possibly not a duplicate:
Tab for questions that are labeled with favorite tags
(refer to end of post to see why)

Currently, to view a feed of all questions tagged with my favorite tags, I have a bookmark in my browser, which is: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/java+or+html+or+css+or+javascript+or+jquery+or+actionscript-3+or+ruby+or+regex+or+python (link)

Now, I have a few problems with this:

  • It doesn't update when I change my favorite tags
  • I can only access it from my computer

I searched around a bit and found this filter thing, which supposedly gives you questions tagged with your favorite tags across SE, but:

There's also the Unanswered tab, which has a "my tags" category, but there are problems with it as well:

  • You can only see questions with no answers (of course)
  • The only way you can sort it is by votes (not newest)
  • It doesn't update in real time

So, could we please get a "my tags" filter? I'm thinking something like either of these:

I personally like option B more. (for future reference, here's how I made that checkbox)

NOTE: This is not a duplicate of Tab for questions that are labeled with favorite tags. I am not requesting a tab, but I am requesting that we keep the same tabs we have now, but we add a "favorite tags" checkbox/option.

    Yes, searching for [c++] or [c++11] or [algorithm] or ... is no fun.

  • Yeah, this makes sense to me. I've always thought the "hide ignored tags" thing was a bit backwards. There are far more tags I'm not interested in than tags I am interested in. Even with the wildcards, there's no way I can build up a comprehensive list of tags to ignore. It's not that difficult to build up a comprehensive list of "favorite" tags.

As you can see here, "My watched tags" does exactly what you want:

Soon you will be able to save this as left sidebar thing, so I'd argue that this question kinda sorta might be a dupe D:
