Galacticomm's successor to The Major BBS. It still supported regular old console and RIP BBSing, but also provided another option: the Worldgroup client. The sysop could design a completely graphical representation of the traditional Major BBS menu system, and Windows users with the client installed could have an AOL- or Prodigy-like experience, depending on how creative the sysop was. There was also a default that simply created an icon for each menu option, for the lazy sysops. Galacticomm seems to have been bought out by netVillage, and Worldgroup has survived only as a Web-based service for "legacy" customers.

The Internet, and the Web in particular were primarily responsible for the death of Worldgroup.
