It's worth clarifying exactly how Awasu works. Channels are configured to keep feed items for a certain amount of time, after which Awasu will automatically purge them. This is the <i>only</i> time feed items get deleted. As I said here
, RSS is not the same as email and IMO, designing things so that users have to <i>manually</i> delete bucket-loads of feed items is a colossal waste of their time.
However, Awasu can be configured to not <i>show</i> certain feed items which, for most purposes, is basically the same thing.
In response to your question here
, I was going to suggest the following:
(*) Configure your channels to only show unread items.
(*) Configure a keyboard shortcut to mark an item as read.
(*) As you work your way through the items, if you mark an item as read, Awasu will refresh the page with it taken out, which is effectively the behaviour you're looking for.
Thing is, when I went to test this, it seems the GUI toolkit Awasu uses won't let you assign a keyboard shortcut to <i>Mark as read</i>
This option exists in the context menu when you right-click inside the item pane but the GUI toolkit only lets you assign shortcuts to stuff in the main menu. This is a bit unfriendly IMO and I'll raise a ticket with the vendor but in the meantime, I'll add something to the next release to let you assign a shortcut. But if you try it using the context menu, you can see it works.

I totally agree. I'm a hardcore keyboard user and the default keyboard shortcuts have been designed to allow for fast reading of content (using the left hand for the keyboard, the right hand on the mouse). And you can always change them in the Customize dialog if you don't like them
