Over the past few months, Quora has been rolling out a variety of new features to help improve the experience on the social question and answer site.  The newest element is a browse page that joins Shuffle (launched in June) and Topic Pages (launched in July).  The goal of the new browse page is to deliver fresh, relevant content that is personalized to Quora users.  The new browse page pulls in recently upvoted answers from both topics that you follow and topics that are related to what you follow.  This new functionality looks very nice visually, with large icons for the various topics:

Quora Browse Feature

When clicking on a topic within browse, the section expands to show the “best answer” and the associated author. This gives authors more visibility as their avatar is shown alongside of their top answer and can be instantly followed:

As well as all of the topics within the browse section, there is also a trending section for the most popular content across Quora.  Joel Lewenstein, Product Designer at Quora, stated:

“The goal of the Browse page is to give you a fun way to find new content on Quora. The photo grid at the top shows topics with recently upvoted answers. These topics are personalized to you, chosen from topics related to ones you follow. The list will change over the course of hours and days, so check back often to see the newest content.”

Head over to Quora’s browse page to start finding the best answers on topics that relate to you.
