I think you should use a Web Browser
since
all MS newsgroups are being shut down...
the only access will be with a web browser

Not exactly, there already existed local nntp2html bridges:
2 MS bridges, 1 for answers and 1 for the rest,

but I recommend Community Forums NNTP bridge

http://communitybridge.codeplex.com/

Current features

* Replaces the MS NNTP Bridge completely
* Unifies the access to scocial and answers forms to a single NNTP
server (no two servers needed!)
* Autologin and Autominimize
* Displays your email address, if you have configured your username
and email (will allow Ctrl-H to work in WLM)
* X-Face support for MVPs, Microsofties and Admins
* Encodes Subject/From only, if non-ASCII characters are present
* MessageId contains a valid domain name
* The message/thread URL of the forum will be submitted in the X-
Comments header, so you can directly go to the web page
* Converts "http(s)" links into html links, if posted in plain/text
* Supports the conversion of html-web-articles into plain/text
articles for your newsreader
* Thunderbird can display the article source code ;)
* Many tracing options to see the newsclients messages/responses
* You can extend the "CommunityForumsNNTPServer.ArticleConverter"
without the LiveID SDK; for compiling the whole source code, you need
to download and install the Windows Live ID Client 1.0 SDK
