The current version of SlimRss:

Very intuitive way of handling new news and old news: This is the big difference with most readers, SlimRss doesn't store all the news. News is only important when it's new..and when you haven't seen it. Once you seen it SlimRss will get rid of it. Saving hard disk space and you trouble from deleting the news. As long as the news is still on the feed tho you can reretrieve it with the option get previous news.
