Gopher Server Addresses


Here are several Gopher clients that you can use to surf Gopherspace. We have attempted to include only the most recently released versions of each client, and the collection represents nearly every known Gopher client available to the public. There are clients here for several different computer platforms, as well as several alternative clients for the same computer platforms.

If possible, we would like to receive functionality reviews from anyone who has attempted to use these Gopher clients, especially users of the Acorn and Atari Gopher clients. Gopher documentation has always been spartan, and this is especially true with Gopher client and server software. Therefore, your comments on any quirks in the way the software functions would be most valuable, and your observations may be included with future documentation we bundle along with the Clients.

If you know of any other Gopher clients not listed here, we would be interested in obtaining a copy to offer as a free download. This includes any Gopher client software you may have developed yourself.
