Shortly after Veronica’s appearance, another Gopher search tool called
Jughead was developed by Rhett “Jonzy” Jones at the
University of Utah Computer Centre. Despite comical appearances, Jones claimed
Jughead stood for Jonzy’s Universal Gopher Hierarch Excavation and Display.
Jughead had similar functionality to Veronica, but added Boolean search capabilities.
However, Jughead restricted the search to individual servers.
