I just tried NetNewsWire, and Vienna, NNW is nice but Google Reader has a great feature that these both are without. In GReader, when I mouse over or scroll down it marks that one article as read. No pushing buttons, clicking next, nothing. Just read. I want to be able to pre-download all of my current unread items, AND the pictures. Gears for GReader does NOT download the pictures. I have a lot of picture only feeds, like lolcats, that I would like to let build up for a week and then on my long plane ride home, check out. In NNW I can smash the space bar and get this accomplished, but I'd rather just scroll through, or at least have the option to. I don't really like the look of Vienna, it's too unpolished, NNW is a tad better and has better options for like the prefs. It would also be interesting to be able to give specific instructions, or adjust certain settings on a per-feed basis. Such as filter out cartain keywords (Without using a service such as feedrinse). I hat vienna because once I click on a feed, it marks everything as read. That's bad for me as I sometimes just open a mega feed and read one or two items. I have maby 20 or 30 feeds, but usually get 2-300 new items a day. Most are junk like Joystick, but I like to sit down and go through the important ones while im taking a break or eating lol. I know you can't but it'd be interesting to allow some feeds to auto queue an embedded movie, let me view it offline (or off my VPN). I'm in China so I can't load certain feeds on the ChinaNet. I open a post linking to youtube, and there's a big blank box where the vid should be. But this is an advanced feature, I would never expect anyone to have this. Plus the disk space it'd hog.
