Final Version: 2.0.3

TurboGopher is one of the fastest, most powerful Gopher clients available on any platform, from the very people who created Gophering. It's multithreaded, and comes with a copy of Thread Manager 2.1 just in case you need it. There are other gopher programs out there, but they all stopped being developed a long time ago. TurboGopher is really the only viable choice--and that's not a bad thing!

User Reviews

"TurboGopher is a delightful and fast application for exploring gopherspace (much faster than webbing!) The interface is self-explanatory, and I find the bookmark workbook particularly useful."
—G. Vinton Palazzolo
