Allow moving through feeds without opening items
Many of the feeds that I subscribe to have fairly high signal-to-noise ratios. As a result, I routinely scroll through the items, marking 50-75% (or more) of them as read before actually opening any of them. Currently, it doesn't appear that The Old Reader can do anything other than browse from the first item incrementally to the end, opening each and every feed item in turn.
You could use list view mode to scroll through items without opening.
Parroting Bill Parrott (couldn't resist that). I NEED those n and p keyboard shortcut to be able to scroll through the list view and mark read those items i do not want to waste time opening.

I may be missing something (or I just may have been misstating what I want). Are there keyboard shortcuts to cycle through a feed in list view without opening the items? Currently, the only shortcuts mentioned - j and k - move through feeds and open the items. Here are the shortcuts from the current Google Reader that I use every day (hundreds of times).
n - move to the next item without opening it
p - move to the previous item without opening it
m - mark the currently selected item as read (if current state == unread) or as unread (if current state == read)
o - expand or close the current item (in list view)
v - open the current item in a new tab (this is the same as The Old Reader's current 'o' shortcut)
The j and k shortcuts on both The Old Reader and Google Reader function identically, but do not fit my personal workflow.
It looks like the 'm' shortcut is currently implemented, but the 'n' and 'p' shortcuts do exactly the same thing as the 'j' and 'k' ones. That is, they move to the next item and open it.
Thanks again, and hopefully this helps better clarify what I am looking for.
