Fast Tag Filtering Idea!

I have this idea for a new type of menu!

I call it 'fast filtering'

It allows you to quickly filterusing tags by selecting them in the sidebar. 

This is a little mockup I made

I often want to quickly find all the nodes that have a particular set of tags. Using the filtering button is a bit more complex than I would like. I think this could be a good solution.

I'm all for that. The filtering process today is too involved for most of the work I do.  this would handle 95% of my use of tags.

This is an interesting idea, though I haven't found filtering with tags to be that difficult. Another option if you find you are using the same filters a lot is to set up SmartRules based on tags which you can turn on or off.

I have one addition to suggest under Options in the mocked up image in the original post - "None" should be a third alternative to "Any" and "All".
