No filter for unanswered questions

This is somewhat related to Need a better way of finding unanswered questions.

Which does make it easier to see what has answers already in a list. However why is there no filter for unanswered? If I'm looking to answer some questions why do I have to hunt them down?

At least on software there's the 4 tabs at the top: Activity, Age, Score, Random

Could we add or change one of those to Unanswered (there could of course be one for Answered as well) these would help facilitate what you're here to do; either help others by answering, or find an answer to your question.

Instead of adding another button, we've made search more robust. Better documentation will be coming, but you can now search for answers:#. answers:0 finds unanswered questions. Actually, it finds unanswered top-level posts, so it's currently returning articles too (oops), but you can also add post_type: to your query and choose the type from the menu that appears when you type that. post_type:1 restricts to questions. (We've received reports that the menu is not working for everybody and are investigating.)

Eventually we want to have more robust, customizable filters, which we'll build on top of search. In the meantime, you can use the raw search.
