There used to be a 'labs' feature that enabled offline mode for google reader, but I no longer have it. I think it disappeared after one of the numerous 'upgrades' I have been offered over the last few months?

Does anyone know how to enable it again?

Google has been phasing out Google Gears-supported features with the support that HTML5 provides for offline applications. According to this blog post on the official Google Reader blog, Google Reader's offline support was powered by Google Gears and was phased out effective 1 June 2010. The blog post also provides 3 clients (one OSX, one Windows, and one Linux) that can be used to sync with Google Reader and provide offline access to feed items.
