Million of Floating Point Operations Per Second. Used as a measure of computing speed, especially for high-end equipment such as Cray's super-computers (which also reached gigaflops and teraflops while 1MHz C64s were still common). For example, 1976's Cray 1 was said to reach peak performance of 176 megaflops.
