Straight to readable text?

Is there an online RSS feed reader, with a Readability-like feature, that takes me straight to formatted text when I click on a news item? No extra clicks on readability or instapaper buttons please.

Currently I'm using Netvibes as my RSS feed reader. I use it with Readability to strip articles of general cruft and to make the text more legible. It's a nice approach, but it's not ideal. My google-fu has failed me, as has my search of previous asks.
Firstly, I have to click to get the article to display in Netvibes. Another click and it pops up in another tab. One more click on the Readability button and finally I'm ready to go. For one or two articles, that's fine. But when I'm wading through a whole bucketload of articles - not so good.
To be clear, I'm looking for an RSS reader - preferably online - that supplies me with formatted text (like Readability offers) inside the reader. I don't want to have to go to the original article page, nor do I want to have to use extra clicks. If only a software reader will do the job, it will have to run in Linux, or (if a browser addon) Firefox.
If you don't know about such a reader, but have a better method, please tell.
I should add that I want to read my articles at my main pc, and I'm not interested in any of this "read it later" lark.
