Gopher - Definition

Gopher was named for its ability to go for information. Gopher is a text-based information retrieval system for the Internet. Equipped with a Gopher client, you can use Gopher servers to search databases around the globe for keywords or subjects. Because web browsers, such as Mozilla Firefox, include Gopher client capabilities, the Web is superseding Gopher for document retrieval. One advantage of using Gopher is you can read information directly from the servers, with no need to copy or save the files to your system first.
