thanks,
I forgot bombadillo can also do gopher, I tried for gemini for a bit but
ended up switching to "amfora" but it does not do gopher
old lynx of course I know, I forgot it can do gopher so thanks for
reminding me and vf1 I have never tried

in short Thanks will give them a try, Im on Arch GNU/Linux

Happy Hacking

Android is _technically_ GNU/Linux, but probably not what you
meant. Still if you find yourself needing an Android Gopher client, I
like DiggieDog. It's a paid client (by the author of RetroForth) but a
lot better than the other Android clients I've tried IMO.

ELinks can be built with Gopher support as well. There's also
Gopherus.

I think bombadillo is a good TUI gopher browser.

The original UMN gopher client is still available in many distros. I still
"maintain" it, for loose definitions of "maintain".

Also, elpher (in Emacs) is fantastic and also is a Gemini client.

How could I forget Elpher. It's my favorite client!

sacc is dumb simple. Once you install it, you run:
sacc $URL, for example sacc sdf.org .

In the beta are also the Lagrange: Android and TUI versions. It's Gemini
browser, but with Gopher and Finger support.

There's also lynx, which you can run in TermUX on Android. For
TermUX, i like Unexpected Keyboard from F-Droid.
