"Scrolling through post marks it as read" setting per view type
It looks like some users do not like "scrolling through post marks it as read" as a global setting and would prefer being able to configure this behavior separately per view type.24 votes
Auto translate posts
I have some feeds where some posts are in languages other than English thus can't read them. I'd find it extremely useful if I could have those auto translated to a language that I can read so that I can understand what is going on. This needs to be done on a post by post basis as each post is potentially a different language, rather than at the feed level.23 votes
Home more like Google Reader
Google reader's Home folder shows only the latest post from each feed and not all of them (which is handy for feeds that have several new posts a day) and gives priority to feeds I read a lot. That's one of the features I used the most on Google reader and it will be really nice to have it.23 votes
As a user I would like to configure my start page, e.g. "All items"
In many cases I would like to start with the "All items" page instead of the current "Home" page. So, it would be helpful to configure in the settings page the starting page one personally likes to have.23 votes

"Keep unread" checkbox
Please add a "keep unread" checkbox to each feed item. If selected, the item should be kept unread even if "Mark all as read" is used or "Scrolling through posts marks them as read" is active and the item is scrolled through.
This is a feature Google Reader unfortunately never had, but the old version of Bloglines had it and it was missed by many users when old style Bloglines was no more. It would be a great addition to The Old Reader.21 votes

Add "Mark Previous as Read" feature
This is a feature in Google's Android app, but NOT their web interface (????). But it is OH SO helpful.
Say you have 900 unread items, but only time to scan over 300 and read 15. With this, you can scroll through the listing, check out interesting titles, skip the rest, then hit "mark previous as read" when you have to leave. Next time you come back, you start right where you left off.
It is, in my own opinion, a much more "powerful" feature than "Mark All as Read."20 votes

middle clicking a collapsed item's title to open the source link
Some of my feeds have items when clicked on only show a title and no or limited content. It would be great if there was an option to middle click on collapsed items and have them act as a link so that it may be viewed in a new tab. This would save a whole step of having to uncollapse it and click on the title and would allow quick opening of multiple items that are like this.19 votes

Add the possibility to manage Twitter feeds too
I just noticed my twitter feeds didn't import, which is a pity. I'm liking The Old Reader as alternative for when the Google one dies...except for that. I like to follow some public people that way because I can easily see their replies to others. I know Twitter doesn't have the RSS button anymore, but feeds are still working (although the url that must be used changed a while ago).18 votes
Go to the next unread feed when clicking "Mark all as read" button
Clicking "Mark all as read" button should go to the next unread feed. It seems kinda superfluous having to go left to sidebar back with your mouse when quickly scanning through feeds.
This feature request kinda goes hand in hand with already existing feature request that space bar goes also to the next unread feed.18 votes
