There are hundreds of filter tags to choose from. Since these tags are an unexpected feature for the user, they must be easily seen. I plan on giving them a Search Bar. Additionally, for most popular tags, I plan on having chips beneath the search bar (for ten chips) in a horizontal slider. Is this the best option, or should I display a vertical list of fully visible tag options to choose from?

I prefer Chips as best option.

Also, you can review material design

Especially for Filtering search purpose

+ User selected chips appended to the search input are more user friendly

+ We do not need to show the selected option

- With checkboxes this thing is not presentable

+ Also we can add x remove action, so the users can directly remove any selected keyword.

- With checkboxes we need to show a list for checkbox options to uncheck

  • Can you explain why you prefer Chips over checkboxes?
