Stack Exchange network consists of 175 Q&A communities including Stack Overflow, the largest, most trusted online community for developers to learn, share their knowledge, and build their careers.
Why are some question titles highlighted on the main page, while most are not? I had thought perhaps it was because they had been viewed by my computer, but that seems not to be the case.
