Internet Gopher Client

The Internet Gopher Client is based on the UMN Gopher/Gopherd 2.3.1 code. Gopher is an Internet technology that predates the Web. It presents information as a virtual network-wide filesystem. Modern browsers such as Konqueror can display gopherspace as if it contained files on your local machine (trees, drag and drop, etc.), but the difference is that each file or folder in that tree may be on a different machine.

        gopherspace community
        thanks for maintaining another great piece of gopherspace. for anyone reading this, take a look
        at what searching the FM site for gopher returns.
        its a great thing - but we need to ensure mozilla, konquerer and others support for gopher will last !
        go and ask your friendly neighbourhood maintainers.
