Hey, I like your product. Just thought I would add some thoughts

1. I would really like it if the RIL Share option did not open in a new tab. Instead I would love it I could just add it to my RIL list and it would add it in the background

2. I would love it if there is a way to star articles, similar to GReader.

Thanks for making this. Its awesome

You can star articles, just right click and choose "Save This Story" or press S (same as GReader.)

Thanks for the tip Paul. I knew about opening the right click menu, but not the S shortcut. Thanks.

Thanks for the functionality of the right-click/S; but I've found that for every extra motion/keystroke, there's less likelihood for using it. Hence, like Jed asked, I'd love to be able to skim the headlines and just poke a Star or Heart icon, immediately pushing a headline to "saved" folder. Is a single click a possibility? Or right click and highlight several headlnes on the page, and at the end, hitting S, thereby saving/favoriting them all? I'd like to try using Newsblurb as a kind of newswire that is easily scanned and then winnowed further from the "saved" folder. Just a thought, but I'm MOST appreciative of this very sophisticated and professinal reader. Thanks!

The new Instapaper Bookmark can do this. Just like in GReader it saves the currently highlighted news item to your Instapaper account.

I don't use Instapaper. I like Read it Later because it is simple and merely saves a headline and link. I will have to try and see if the RIL bookmarklet works like how you described the Instapaper bookmarlet working. Currently I use a third party extension to mark my RILs in GReader and I love it but it doesn't work with Newsburner. However, I may have to try Instapaper, as I really want to switch my account and that is the one thing missing. Thanks

Actually, it appears that Instapaper works a lot better than the last time I tried it. Thanks

Thanks for all the help, everybody. As for your original question, I plan on building true OAuth implementations of the "Send to" buttons one day. It's been asked for by a number of folks, so I may prioritize it sooner rather than later.
