Gopher, documented in RFC 1436, is a non-hypertext precursor to the World Wide Web based on navigating a series of menus. Unlike anonymous FTP, Gopher permits links to be constructed from one gopher site to another. The advent of the Web, with its graphical, hypertext presentation, has rendered Gopher largely obsolete.
