Until recently (probably today) the "edit tags" link appeared (for 10k users who has inline editing) only when hovering the tags area.

However, now it's always visible:

Can this please be fixed? I don't think we need both "edit tags" and "edit" always visible.

Indeed, this has been implemented recently as a way to fix the jumping effect when long tags are used. Leaving a blank line under the tags didn't look very nice, so we made the link always visible instead.


Considering how poorly has been this change received, and that the original "jumping" problem affects only a small percent of the questions, it has been undone. We'll try to figure out a better solution.

    This is like fixing a hole in a wall by breaking the wall, i.e. instead of fixing the actual problem, making the problem disappear. Totally disagree with this as it is way worse. Commented Aug 1, 2016 at 16:14

    @ShadowWizard What? No! Actually it's just that I didn't want to receive more downvotes ;-)
