Anarchie is an FTP and Archie client. It will let you browse FTP sites, download files, or find them using an archie server. It requires System 7 and MacTCP 1.1 or later. Unfortunately many Archie servers are a bit on the flaky side, but don't worry, just try another server!
Chat is a application that lets a Macintosh with MacTCP serve
as a simple internet chat room. Once Chat is running on your mac, multiple
people can Telnet to your mac and have online discussions.
The user portion of Chat has no macintosh user interface, the only way to use it is by telneting to your mac. However, the adminstrator can perform most of the tasks necessary through the macintosh interface.
Chat can support as many connections as it has memory for - and MacTCP will allow.
CU-SeeMe, a desktop videoconferencing program, for Macintosh and PC,
is available free from Cornell University under copyright of Cornell
and its collaborators. CU-SeeMe provides a one-to-one conference, or
by use of a reflector, a one-to-many, a several-to-several, or a
several-to-many conference depending on user needs and hardware
capabilities. It displays 4-bit grayscale video windows at 160x120
pixels or at double that diameter, and now includes audio on the Mac.
So far as we know, CU-SeeMe was the first software available for the
Macintosh to support real-time multi-party videoconferencing on the
CU-SeeMe is intended to provide useful conferencing at minimal cost.

IRC stands for Internet Relay Chat. What it is is a way for people to talk with thousands of other people, all over the world, in real time (or something close to real time anyway). There are machines around the world known as IRC servers, whose purpose it is to shuttle around all the things that everyone is saying. IRC users interact with something called an IRC client. IRC clients are the interface between a single user and the rest of the IRC world. The program you have here, Homer, is an IRC client written for the Mac, in an attempt to use some of the Mac's snazzy features to create an easy-to-use and powerful interface to IRC.

TurboGopher is a Macintosh application that we believe is (still!)
the fastest Macintosh Gopher client available. Beyond optimizing
TurboGopher for raw speed while fetching documents and directories,
we turbocharged the user interface by displaying information as
soon as possible... you can read the first part of a document or
directory while the rest is being fetched. You can fetch multiple
documents or directories at the same time. TurboGopher also
supports the Gopher+ extensions to the original Internet Gopher
protocol. TurboGopher runs in native mode on both 68K Macs and
on Power Macs.
uuUndo works with uuencoded files. uuencoding is a common format on
non-Macintosh systems which accomplishes the same thing that BinHex does on the
Macintosh; that is, it is designed to allow a binary data file to be stored as
text and thus included in mail and news messages. Unlike the BinHex format,
however, there is no integrity checking built into uuencoding, so there is
absolutely no guarantee that a file has been decoded properly. Be careful!
