Stack Overflow is great and I’m a big fan of the site. However, I’m not such a big fan of their tags page:


Because the tags are ordered solely by popularity and not alphabetically, I find it a bit awkward trying to find a tag I am interested in e.g. if you want to find JavaScript it could be located anywhere in the list.

Admittedly there is a search function to help you find tags but I wanted to be able to scan the list more easily and pick out the tags that interest me most. So, to scratch my own itch, I created a Greasemonkey script to transform the current tags page into a tag cloud:


Because the tags are in alphabetical order with their font size weighted according to popularity, I find it much easier to find tags I am interested in.

Try it out for yourself and see what you think:

And if you have any suggestions for improvements, please leave a comment.
