Now I tried to guess the factors which could come up for this, but no help. Can anyone tell me please what these multi-colour question section depicts?

  • This is a most useless feature of SO, because you already have the possibility to make feed out of only tags you like. – Your Common Sense Sep 27 '13 at 10:24

    @YourCommonSense I strongly disagree. I find it useful to easily distinguish between the two types of questions, I don't work with feeds. So maybe it's not the most useful feature in the world but surely not useless. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Sep 27 '13 at 10:30

As told by two persons in the comment, its because I have Favorited a Tag and all the questions with that tag are highlighted for me.. :) :)

  • Yup, thats right.. – Akshat Sep 30 '13 at 6:11
