    I have been using RSSOwl for about a year an really like it. I have a
    suggestion that I think would be a helpful additon to RSSOwl.

    It would be helpful (and a time-saver) to have the ability to scroll the
    message pane and move between messages using only the keyboard. I use a plugin
    for Thunderbird called Nostalgy, which is a huge time-saver. Among other
    things, it binds the Shift-Left/Right keys to scroll the message pane while
    the thread pane remains focused. This makes it very quick to work through and
    read a list of messages. I thought this functionality would be a great
    addition to RSSOwl.

    Hi

    I can do that (with default config) by using the "tab" key. Control+Tab
    focuses on the central news view. See "Edit | Preferences | Key bindings" for
    more configurable key bindings. Enough configurable?

    Possibly. I'll check it out a bit more closely. I still can't find a way to delete a feed item while scrolling the feed message without Ctrl-Tab back to the feed item list first.
