HomePage show articles of tags and authors that I follow.
Have a page "Explore" where we can see all posts and all tags

Ooooo! "Explore" is a neat idea! Oh wait, isn't that what Popular (you know, week | month | year | infinity tabs) does right now?

Another thing, I like to scroll until I find some articles that I like, you know that people who scroll and scroll on instagram? Thats me on Dev.
Will be nice if I already see an article to make them disappear on homepage but easily reachable if I want to read them again. I don't know the best solution for this but what I mean is if I scroll for 2 minutes and then refresh the page, I need to scroll everything again to see new articles and that makes me leave the page and wait until new articles appear on top of my feed again

Thanks for this feedback! Curious, have you used the "Save" feature to save articles you are interested in and want to return to later?

yes sure :)
What I mean is If I already read the article probably I don't want to read them again and I don't want them to appear on my feed

May be just add ”Day” as well to it and that will be explore, while home page shows content from people you follow and tags

join all these 4 tabs in "Explore", with week | month | year | infinity as a filter, plus as someone mentioned here, make a something to see all the tags, I think you can do it everything together inside "Explore" tab/page.

I believe will make the homepage Cleaner, on the other side will make the user to make 2 clicks to see, for example, the week posts

While I found the idea interesting of the "Explore" option, I'd caution against it.

Whilst it would make the homepage more clean it might cause an annoyance of the user friendliness, since two clicks might not seem such a hurdle in the beginning, it may become just that long term.

And it might just become cluttered up inside of that drop-down which might make the design deviate from the feel of the website.

Overall, I really like the feed to-the latest bar on the homepage. But to offer an alternative view of this.

Couldn't you guys add a "My Tags" option below the "Settings" in the drop-down that is in the top right corner where the profile pic is. Here's a little demo that might be what it can look like when you click the "My Tags" button.

The green marker indicating the chosen tag and those that haven't a green marker are off the feed.
