I'm in more often then daily: I do a similar thing:
Click on quick links dropdown menu and click on Today's posts.
Then I go down clicking on each blue checkbox button to the left of the subject using the mousewheel (you can click down on the mousewheel--that is a "center button click") In chrome that opens the link up in a new tab.
At the end of that I have all the new topics opened up in each tab scrolled to the latest post.
Then I go through the tabs.
When I'm done I go back to the original search page and click on QuickLinks->Mark forums read
