"Lightweight" at 14 MB? The web site says, "installation file is under 3.5MB." The {app} folder is 10 MB.

Great News weighs in at 2 MB and Abilon at 1 MB.

Funny thing is, my very favourite feedreader is still an old (and a bit buggy) version 2.9 of this one, for several reasons. It really is lightweight, extremely easy to use, with a clear display and the biggest screen estate of any similar product, because of the every economic handling of the display (no tabs, even).

Sadly, the author has succumbed to the models of other similar products and missed the originality of his own earlier product. I installed the newer versions twice and uninstalled them twice, quickly. Am back now to the simple, clear charm of the last old version 2.9. Does everything for me, even got filters. It's a pity the author discontinued that old version.

I believe, the new version, too, is based on IE, using it's engine and security settings. When you rightclick in the main page you should get your IE's context menu.

FeedReader only writes to the %APPDATA%\Feedreader folder if feedreader.ini is NOT present in the EXE directory.

If the ini file is present in the EXE directory,all data such as the database and cache are created in the EXE directory.

FR 3.12 is a nice - oversized - program with up-to-date user interface and design (I will use it in future :-)
FR 2.9 is the old fashioned small size version with the (almost) same functionality as the new/big brother
I seems to me that the above described method (feedreader.ini into the work folder) works with FR 2.9 too...

FeedReader 3.14 is not a portable Software! It is a good software, but it´s not portable. The option "make portable" during intallation has no effect...

@Dot and Midas: BIG Thanks to both of you!! Version 2.9 is perfect.
I have been testing so many of these rss apps its ridiculous,
they all seem to require IE in some manner or other.
Version 2.9 is exactly what I have been lookin for.
I have found a couple of good ones mind you but this one is superb :)
