I use "view new posts". Then I scan down the list of forums and I only look at the thread titles from the forums I have the most interest in. I find this the most efficient way to make sure I don't miss any threads that I want to pay attention to. If I haven't been on all day, I might log in to find 4-8 pages worth of reading, but by scanning down the list of forums, it doesn't take that long to catch up.
