    I never thought of it like that. I'll think about that concept... At the least, that's something I should really shoot for with my.jbidwatcher.com when I bring that live, but it's might not be a bad idea for the app itself. There isn't a read/unread concept, but the keyboard navigation is something I use all the time also.

    So...which part? The j/k for moving the selection up and down, 'o' for 'open' (which right now would open in a browser), or using 'v' to view the original (which right now would do the same thing)?

    Any particular lesser-known keystrokes of Reader that you find yourself trying to do in JBidwatcher?

    cool! didn't realize you had a web app brewing.. that could be very interesting on a mobile device.

    I use tabs to categorize my searches, and I often find myself switching between them, trying to focus on just those ending soon. I wasn't exactly thinking of a read/unread concept {though that may have it's place to for some users}, but more of a navigation enabler.

    this is the navigation i use frequently in Reader
    g+t+ tag - which is goes to a tab (e.g. g+t+complete)
    n/p to switch selection Next/Previous {shift n/p cycles the tabs} (I use this rather than j/k)
    space / shift-space to scroll up/down
    ? - which brings up the keyboard shortcut help within reader

    thanks for considering it.
