Click any part of the feed to open it, not just the title.
A small but nice feature of Google Reader is being able to open a feed item by clicking any part of it, not just the title. This allows for faster access and an overall smoother experience.
This has been done, please see the announcement at http://blog.theoldreader.com/

I prefer the current behavior (click the bar to mark it as read without opening), it matches my work flow better. Vote against.
yeah make it just like google-reader, rly most options should be copied from there.

It might be an option for the one that need it, but I don't want this as default behavior

I know some like the current way, but it would be nice if there was at least an option to make clicking anywhere on a collapsed article, expand that article.
I've crated a user style, that makes the title full-width, so you can click it more easily:
You need a Chrome Stylebot Extension for that: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/stylebot/oiaejidbmkiecgbjeifoejpgmdaleoha

I noticed the behavior Ryan describes, but it felt more like a bug to me than something deliberate. Maybe it would be better to have a more obvious way to mark a collapsed post as read without having to open it (a button or something) while allowing a click anywhere else on the post title to expand it?

I don't want this.

I'm not sure this is the right thing, but i think it should be possible to open (and more importantly close) a post in list view by clicking anywhere on its title line.
Then perhaps we can have a "mark as read" checkbox for Ryan's feature?

I'm going to vote against this one. One thing I really like about TOR is that if I click anywhere but the title, it makes that item as read. In Reader I had to open the item and close it (yes I know you could make it mark as read if you scroll past but that didn't work for how I use it).
