This'll restore the previous behavior: tags will remain in the order in which you add them.

But it'll even do one better: per rene's suggestion from the comments, it'll also allow you to reorder the tags at will by dragging them around (you have to start editing them first though, so as to avoid inadvertently reordering them while trying to click).

  • Is "Chrome 6.8" supposed to mean Chrome 68, or did you actually try it in Chrome 6.8? – a stone arachnid Sep 5 at 23:59
