Horizontal searches: A query across your feed results

QueryXML™ is a way to search for content.

With many feeds in an aggregator, one can lose track of key concepts.

I would like to see aggregators have some sort of horizontal searching. One that lets the users take all their active feeds, and do a key word search on that content.

This would help with prioritizing feeds, and getting feed-content that is most related to what is the current task, focus, or priority.

Ideally, it would be nice to have pre-programmed horizontal searches for key terms in the aggregator; and then have a means to extract all content corresponding not to the content source, but the key word or item of interest.

I would imagine that there would be folders that users could have this content pre-assigned; or automatically forwarded to once active search-requests are applied against the content that shows up.

Bug

This option cycles through many times, then finally stablizes. Workaround: Let it cycle through for 30 seconds and it will stop.
