Hiding the subscriptions list

One of my personal favorite new features is the ability to hide the subscriptions list. It gives you more room when you’re viewing a web page—or you can even use NetNewsWire as a single-pane aggregator.

A couple screen shots:

You can hide and show the subscriptions list manually via the View menu: choose Hide Subscriptions List (or Show, of course, depending on its state). It has the same keyboard shortcut as Mail has for showing/hiding mailboxes.

The way I use it is to have it hidden and show automatically. When viewing a web page, it hides. When viewing a news item, it shows. Choose View > Automatically Hide Subscriptions.
