Reddit should drop the algorythm and embrace digg's logic of moving down older posts as new posts come alive.

I hate having to re-read everything just to look for something new to read.

That would require them knowing what each individual user's rate of refreshing the page was. This is a reasonable balance between showing newer stories and showing stories which were very popular. Many more articles are posted than make the front page. So you would be wading through a lot of severe crap all the time, every time you refreshed.

There is always a top-ten section refreshed every 24 hours. Also upcoming stories don't get to the front page as easy, for THAT you use an algorythm.

So... your browser doesn't track history for you?

Same applies to HN btw.
