offrss is a standalone program that can download your favorite feeds and then show them in your favorite Web browser by spawning a simple local Web server. It will not only download the feeds' text, but also the pictures, so you will also be able to read comics strips and enjoy posts with pictures in them while offline. It can also generate PDFs from text. It remembers what you read and what you don't, and all the information stays in normal files, so you can synchronize it easily to any device that may not have an Internet connection. It can also work as a CGI to serve your feeds in your Web site, and it can update the feeds from crontab. It has few dependencies to build and can be cross compiled easily.
