    Hey thanks for the comprehensive list. I like to use fish which has autocompletion among other cool things. I wanted to try out finalterm, but the project was abandoned. So am wondering if there’s any other terminal emulator like Finalterm that supports autocompletion and syntax highlighting.

    stjerm (https://github.com/stjerm/stjerm) is another dropdown terminal

    The urxvt Window looks very simple. It does have pseudo transparency and a lot of really nice features your image doesn’t even attempt to show.

    Hm… its interesting… Post, no matter what

    Title is: 20 Useful Terminal Emulators for Linux

    Experimental Terminal platform built on WebKit + node.js. Currently only for Mac and Windows, though the prototype works 90% in any WebKit browser.

  5. Daniel says:

    PAC Manager is a rather different and extremely rich approach to the topic of terminal emulators.

    It’s commercial, but I’ve been a user of VanDyke Software’s SecureCRT for years now. Originally only for windows, they ported it to Linux and OSX a few years back and it’s become my go-to term app on all 3 platforms.

    Thank you.
    Is there any terminal with revert scrolling? I mean to when you run a command the result scroll up to down?

    • GLeenaert says:

      In the preferences menu of Terminator, you can enable scrolling, among other things.

      (I’m using it, and liking it, as the default terminal on the crunchbang ‘Waldorf’ distro.)
