How is "Most used" determined for sorting of feeds? Is it based on the number of items read?

Straight count of the number of times you open a site. I'm open to better heuristics, but adding something like a time decay is a bit of work, so I'm hesitant to implement that until I work on v3 of NewsBlur (v2 is Social, and v1 is what's out there now). v3 will be Intelligence, which will include a bunch of options for which feeds get displayed.

Is this getting brought back? Are we at v3 now?

How about having the sort be based on the percentage of feed stories actually "read" of the feed? IE, if I actually scroll through 20 stories out of 100, that feed has 20%. If I scroll through 6 stories of 8, that one has 75%. Marking stories as read would not count as reading them.

This would actually be helped by having a keyboard shortcut that moves to the next story without actually "reading" it.
