Yes, the bookmarking feature was really useful.  I seem to recall using
the reference gopher client from late 1993 to 1995, with my bookmarks
shown by default at startup.  With a good shell provider back in the
day, the command line was really not that difficult to use.  I remember
using mail, netnews, and gopher from a Unix prompt years before I really
knew all that much about Unix.
