Each site's home presents a list of recently active questions. For those items that are marked "answered X hours ago by Y", the link goes to the top of the question.

When I click on the link, especially for old questions, it is almost always in order to see the new answer, and I then have to scroll down and search for it. If there are a lot of answers, the new one is usually near, but not at, the end.

It would be a lot more convenient if the link were to the new answer itself.

EDIT: I've been clicking on the item's title. Thanks to MEE's comment, I now know that the "answered ..." text is also clickable, and does what I wanted: Example

My (now minor) complaint is that the "answered" text isn't obviously clickable. The title and person are blue, but the "answer" doesn't turn blue until I hover over it.

    It does go to the answer for me. Can you point to a specific example? What browser are you using, and do you have any userscripts? – Monica Cellio Mar 24 at 19:06

    In addition to what @Monica said: you should also be able to go to the latest activity on the post by clicking the "active: 3 mins ago" link in the right sidebar (only the timestamp is a link) – MEE was the missing bracket Mar 24 at 19:26
