Try my RSSOwl Portable - I think it's what you're looking for.

NNTP != RSS feeds

NNTP != RSS feeds

NewsGrabber hasn't had a new version in almost 3 years? That sounds like a dead project to me.

Ah

I didn't know whether it was NNTP or RSS, so I just suggested that. Otherwise, I believe that Thunderbird can.

I must admit I have not used a client side RSS reader in years.
I much prefer reader.google.com

Hello!?

Per my first post in this thread...the original poster is asking about NewsGrabber which is a news reader as in a Network News Transporst Protocol (NNTP) client. This is the original type of "news" available on the internet.

This has zero to do with an RSS reader.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_News_Transfer_Protocol

For the non-programmer types out there, "!=" means "does not equal" in some programming languages.

Like: apples != oranges

or

NNTP != RSS feeds

BuddhaChu thanks

you are right I am looking for a Network News Transporst Protocol (NNTP) client.

like (if not) NewsGrabber, can it be made portable?

Tbird

As Ryan suggested above, try Thunderbird for now. I don't think it has a lot of "fancy" NNTP client features, but it may work for you.

As far as making NewsGrabber portable, I dunno.
