I see a number of views counter with all asked questions. What is the use of this? It would be better to see a way to sort the questions by the number of views as well.

The view counter shows number of views, but implicitly it has information about question age and popularity, since more interesting titles will be clicked on more frequently.

There is no way to sort by number of views and not sure why there should be the way, since view count info is not very meaningful alone.

Yes, it is not meaningful alone so it could be offered as a way to sort once a primary sort method as been used. Or else I don't feel the need to have it occupying space with every question.
