  2. Add favicons to article list

    The favicon (optional) would be nice to the left of or instead of the feed title in the article list would be nice. A minor and cosmetic addition I know.

  3. Undo last action

    One of the features that Google Reader was lacking is undoing previous action. I think that every software should have such option. I've had situations where I'd want to get back in time just for a split second. Marking all articles as read might have you lose some hair. Dragging and dropping a feed to wrong folder can make you wonder "where did that go". I am aware that undoing complicated action might not be a trivial task, but it surely will be satisfying feeling for an end user when he realizes that he doesn't have to spend half an…

  4. Полоса прокрутки

    У вас полоса прокрутки не в самом краю находится. Из-за этого, когда по привычке кидаешь мышку в правый край до упора, полоса прокрутки остаётся в миллиметре слева, и по ней нужно специально целится. А поскольку она ещё и тоненькая, то целится становится не так и просто

  5. Multiple sharing channels

    GR featured channels/folders/tags you could make public via RSS.

    E.g. you could have channels named "science news" and "health" which you would be able to syndicate further to sites like FB.

    (It would be AWESOME to have it here. This feature was the only thing keeping me on GR.)

  6. Do not strip background colours of feeds

    For example for the RSS feed of wikipedia's recent changes, the changes to each wiki article are highlighted through the use of colours.
    See:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:RecentChanges&feed=atom

    However, background colors are stripped to conform with the theme of the old reader, but making it difficult to see what has actually changed.

    Please add the setting to disable this.

  7. Next button feature that takes you to blogs directly using your subscription list

    Much like the Google "Next" button, make a clickable button that is located in a toolbar that takes you to the next unread blog you subscribe to. (This way you visit blogs directly, but you manage your subscriptions through The Old Reader)

  8. Set a feed to automatically add all new articles to Pocket

    I like the Pocket integration, as I often read the list of new articles in the morning, add to Pocket the ones that I want to read, and then read them offline with Pocket on my way to work. This works fine, but I noticed that for some feeds I always add all new articles to Pocket. It would be great, if I could have some kind of a setting on those feeds to make The Old Reader automatically add all the new articles to Pocket, without me having to do it manually.

  9. Show a "Mark as unread" button at the top of the RSS article

    Show a "Mark as unread" button at the top of the RSS article

    when scanning the new articles, sometimes I end up opening an article that I decide to read later, which is often the case for long articles. I then want to mark the item as unread to avoid it gets lost, but to do so I have to scroll down to the end of the article, which may be several screens long.
    Having an easily accessible "mark as unread" button at the top (say next to the posting date/time) would really make life easier (at least for me).

  10. Zoom articles with + and - (change font size)

    just like in Google Reader, I'd like increase the font size just by pressing the plus button and decrease with the minus button.

  11. List duplicate feeds for removal.

    After a recent import and feed-adding-spree, I've ended up with a lot of duplicate feeds. Most of them are due to the websites changing their feed URL, and some seem to have the same feed URL.

    It would be great if TOR could find feeds with the same posts and provide a list so the duplicates can be easily reviewed and removed.

    Possibly also show feeds which are a subset of other feeds, so you can remove the subset feed if it's covered by a full feed already.

    Let me know if you need more information :-)

  12. I would like to be able to read Instapaper articles from within Old Reader (so I can use Spritz to read them).

    I understand that you can send articles to Instapaper (if you are a Premium member) but I would also like to be able to read Instapaper articles from within Old Reader.

    This is mainly so I can use Spritz to read them.

  14. Emulate Google Reader "compact view"

    Google reader had a function call "compact view" and it compresses the headlines into a more e-mail like format.

  15. Allow iframes in feed items

    Slashdot feed has iframes for top 5 comments, which allows to read/moderate them without opening the main site.

    Google reader displays this iframe; Old Reader does not.

  16. "Go to tag/subscription/friend" keyboard shortcuts

    Few very useful shortcuts are still missing (compared to Google Reader). Quoting GR help:

    g then u go to subscription allows you to navigate to a subscription by entering the subscription name

    g then t go to tag allows you to navigate to a tag by entering the tag name

    g then f go to friend allows you to navigate to a friend's shared items by entering the friend's name

  17. Please unbold/grey/change color of headlines that have been opened and read.

    Please differentiate between headlines that have been clicked on, and read, as opposed to those that aren't clicked on.

    It seems the green tag (unread) disappears after the headline is loaded, but headlines should only be marked "read" after being clicked on.

  18. Show "just read" posts

    From the home page, add a way to see the most recently read items (say, 50 or 100 of them — or arbitrarily far back). Sometimes I'm reading quickly and I accidentally go onto another feed, skipping past something I actually want to read, and it's extremely difficult to find the skipped item again.
