I need a feed reader that recognises different reading preferences for different feeds.
Let me back up.
There are two kinds of feeds — feeds of content (blogs) and feeds of notifications (calendars, del.icio.us popular, digg, forums). The first kind you want to read all of — even if I miss checking my feeds for awhile I want to see what the blogs I read said. I won’t care tomorrow what was on del.icio.us popular today, there’ll be 100 new items!
Google Reader does a great job on the first kind of feed, holding content until I read it. Firefox’s LiveBookmarks does a good job on the second kind, showing only current content. What we need is a nice interface for both.
I’ve heard the new Bloglines might… perhaps I’ll check it out.
