Mark Read

Bloglines has updated their UI again, on the beta site. One of the changes is that each posting now has this new “Mark Read” control on it:

When you click it, it turns from that grey color to a very pale blue color, indicating that it’s marked read.

In other words, if you have any color blindness, or if you are just not looking very closely, it looks like every article is already marked read on initial page load, and that when you click it to mark it unread, it doesn’t change at all.

Who thought that this was a good idea?
