Interesting idea but, in my opinion, given the vast array of topics, for something like this to be engaging you will need to provide a tag selector at the least.
Maintaining a local index of tags, updated daily perhaps, to feed a work-alike tag selector as available on SE sites would be my next step.

It seems that the HTML entities are escaped, in the results. Can this be fixed?

I'd love it to bring up
x questions. Is that possible?

I'd recommend filtering by answered/unanswered as a very useful first filter option.

I suggest giving a list of 10/15/20 questions instead of redirecting.
Now I click "Go", wait until the question is loaded and if its not satisfactory I need to go back, click "Go", ... Quite a lengthy process (about 5-6 s). If submitting just gave me a list of 10/15/20 question, I could
read the titles first,
open the questions I'm interested in in new tabs.

Another feature that could be useful is to ignore some tags. That would help in not getting unwanted questions in sites such as SO.

This seems to bring up closed questions as well as questions that have been migrated off the site.
