Gopher was developed in 1991 and first used at the University of Minnesota and named after its mascot. Gopher is a menu-driven interface that allows a user to browse for text information served off of various Gopher servers. Later versions of gopher, such as HyperGopher, allowed users to also view GIF and JPEG files. After 1996, most Gopher servers were either converted to the World Wide Web or taken offline.
