I've noticed some questions on the questions page are tinted darker than others

enter image description here

Looking at the CSS, I see that they have the same class applied to them as the normal-shaded questions on the page (and the other tinted ones). Is this a bug, or does it serve some design purpose?

The darker colored questions are those questions which have a tag that is one of your Favorite Tags. You can define these Favorite Tags on the right side of the home page:

Favorite Tags options

If I recall correctly, SE now automagically tries to identify your Favorite Tags if you never specified any by analyzing your browsing patterns. A quick search seems to imply that these are called Frequented tags.

Also, Ignored Tag questions should get a slight fade out effect.
