Liferea has terrible usability. But I still use it, as I haven't found anything better :-( I don't want something text-based, Blam seems too simple, and I don't want to load all the KDE libraries either. Maybe I'll try RSSOwl. But it would be nice to use something packaged for my distro...

Follow-up: tried RSSOwl and it's pretty awesome :-) And packages are available for major distros, with a well-written installation HOWTO. Try it :-)

I use Liferea, and am mostly happy with it. The "Mark Items Read" button in the toolbar needs to go away, I agree about that.

The "Unread items" folder already went away for me. It was never useful for me, so I just deleted it. I click on "Next unread" to go to the next unread item. This moves to the next folder with unread stuff, if necessary. I've rarely had trouble finding an item if I click on the "Next unread" button too many times, but I can see how that could happen.
