Google Reader now moves to the next folder when you’re done reading

Just discovered another nice little tweak from yesterday’s Google Reader update. Now, when you’re reading items in a folder (tag) using the space bar or “j”, it automatically takes you to the next folder with unread items in your list when you get to the end of the current folder.

So, instead of “tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, mouse to next folder and click, tap, tap, …”

It’s “tap, tap, tap, tap, (switch to next folder happens seamlessly here), tap, tap, tap…”

Yay! :-)

Standard

    The “j” doesn’t work for me in that manner (moving from one completed/read tag to the next unread tag), but “space” does. FF 2.0.0.1, XP.

    Edit: Verified same result with FF 2.0.0.6.

    I always use to get to the next unread item. Spacebar works better than J because instead of just going to the next item, it scrolls up the screen for extra long posts.. Anyway, it’s been going to the next folder once the current folder is completely read for a few months now.
