Just to summarise the problems - Iceweasel (and FireFox) is the only
"integrated" GUI gopher browser, most other gopher browsers just show
the gopher menu tree and in some cases plain text documents with
Iceweasel I can view images, html documents, flash files, sound files
etc (assuming I have the appropriate plug-in) where as other gopher
browsers would have to open another application, also other GUI gopher
browsers have suffered from a lack of development in recent years
(mainly (IMHO) because Iceweasel/FireFox did the job so well) which
means they can look quite dated and lack a certain user friendliness
(as far as I know the console gopher client -is the only dedicated
gopher client still under active development).
