Mark all RSS articles as 'read' in Safari 4 Beta Web Browsers
When I installed Safari 4 Beta, I started to play around RSS feeds for the first time. But there was one thing that made me crazy: I couldn't figure out how to mark all new articles as being "read." This is a problem if an RSS feed shows something like "38 new articles" and you just want to catch up in a hurry.

One day, when I hit the reload button, I found out that all articles were read after that. Tried it out on many RSS feeds in Safari 4 and it worked for all of them.

[robg adds: This also works in Safari 3, as was mentioned here briefly in the comments to this hint. Note that you'll probably also want to visit the RSS tab in Safari's Preferences and enable the "Highlight unread articles" option to more easily see which articles have not been read.]

One could use the "Mark All As Read" option in the lower part of the RSS sidebar on the right. Not surprisingly, it marks all RSS articles as read.

Hmmm...I don't see this in my RSS feed window. Perhaps you have a plug-in that adds this feature?

If you have 'Marked Articals as read' after viewing RSS page.
Then you will not have the Marked as Read menu item.

If you have the 'Marked Articals as read' After Clicking Them.
Then you will.

Interesting, I also have the option. I just recently downloaded the beta, perhaps you need an update? Also I do have some feeds in Mail so perhaps that triggers the option.
