Why don't we change tag browsing to a more common faceted browsing engine? People are used to these from Target, Best Buy, etc. I know there's open source options that we could plug in.

Faceted browsing allows people who aren't comfortable with the concept of search limiters to easily see how they're limiting and unlimiting searches.

Since I'm currently redesigning a digital library user interface to use faceted browsing, I'm happy going into more detail about it if anyone wants.
