Jughead

For most of the 1990s, Jughead was a tool for searching the information on Gopher sites for particular subjects. (Gopher was a kind of forerunner of the World Wide Web, which, when it arrived, rather quickly made the Gopher system superfluous.) Jughead could also be used to build a searchable menu of a particular Gopher hierarchy of menus. Jughead was similar to Veronica , another Gopher search facility. However, it was less sophisticated and intended for searching a smaller Gopher area. By 2000, however, because most Gopher servers had ceased operation, Jughead and Veronica were no longer relevant.

Jughead and Veronica are featured comic characters (along with Archie) in Archie Comics. The originator of the acronym was apparently Rhett "Jonzy" Jones, who developed Jughead in 1993 at the University of Utah.
