On the new Google Reader, Jason Clarke says:
“It also solves the biggest knock against Bloglines, which is that clicking on a feed doesn’t immediately mark every post in that feed as read – they’re only marked read as you scroll past them.”
While Steve Matthews, in a post talking about the 5 things he hates about the new Google Reader says:
“I have to manually mark everything I read by scrolling over it. A big waste of time.”
So which is accurate Google Reader users? For the record, I’ve been a Bloglines user for years and have never, ever seen the behavior Jason describes as a Bloglines “knock”. In fact, one of the reasons I chose not to use Google Reader way back when was because, as Steve points out, you can’t click on a category folder and load everything in those feeds and have it all marked read.
