I would say this would help reduce the duplicate stories
Haven’t heard this one before. Why would you want alphabetical sorting of stories? Just for de-duplication? That wouldn’t exactly work, since you’d just see a bunch of the same story in a row (if multiple feeds wrote the same story).
Wow, that use case looks rough, since you have a lot of changing indicators to denote uniqueness, but if you’re too broad those all start to look like the same story when they are not all related. Anyway, I don’t see alphabetical sorting of stories coming, as the index for that (to page through) would be on top of the very expensive date indexes I have for every story.
Time to find a new rss reader.
You’re going to find an rss reader that supports this use case? Good luck.
Before GReader shutdown, I was using Feeddemon which had sorting by date and alphabetical.
Well I’m subscribed to some feed which has e.g. 50-100 daily items and is about new releases… of err… software. And it’s item title has the [python] tag first (now it can be an aggregated view of usergroups feeds. If one can sort that alphabetically it’d help to get to the more importatnt items faster.
