10.4: Create a 'View all RSS articles' hotkey in Safari Web Browsers
Tiger only hintI check the news many times each day, and I like Safari's new RSS features. However, I find it cumbersome that to view all of my feeds, I need to click on the bookmark folder and then on the 'View all RSS Articles' link.

I wanted a quicker way to view all of my feeds. Safari assigns hotkeys to the links in the bookmark bar, but not to folders. My solution was to copy the URL of the 'all feeds' page (after activating it), and give it its own space in my bookmarks bar. The headlines still update automatically. Now, all of my headlines are just a command-3 away for me when I'm in Safari.

[robg adds: I hadn't though to bookmark the actual page's URL in order to use keyboard shortcuts. Instead, I used Bookmarks -> Show All Bookmarks menu, then enabled the Auto-Click item for the RSS folder. This at least got it down to a single mouse click. But I like the idea of a keyboard shortcut even better, so I've now switched over to this method.]

Alternatively, you can creat a folder on your bookmarks bar with each of your rss feeds. Then you can still see the number of new articles. Then Command-clicking the folder on your bookmark bar goes automatically to the "View All RSS Articles" link. Since i have my middle mouse button mapped to Command+Click, middle clicking also works for me. I'm not sure that is default behavior though.

This is what I did also, using my programmed command-click trackball button.
One advantage to creating your own folder in the bookmarks bar, is you then can place the RSS feeds in an order other than alphabetical, as the "All RSS Feeds" collection does. This order will appear in both the bookmark bar folder menu, and on the RSS sidebar.

I'm now experimenting with using the auto-click checkbox instead of command-click to show all feeds, as this is the action that I usually do.
