A new iTerm2 fork
Authored by: ether on Sep 10, '10 09:51:36AM

Clearly (thanks commenters for the listing!) terminal has come a long way since I abandoned it for iterm, and has some new features I'd like in iterm.

iterm allows you to tear off a tab to create a new window, which you can resize (e.g. to display something with long lines). When you're done, you can stick the window back on to reintegrate the torn-off tabs, which resize to the size of the window you're sticking them to.

I also like iterm's ability to put tab names at the top or bottom, and change their style.

Finally, iterm lets you go directly to tab n by typing command-n (n between 1 and 9).

Same for Terminal.app, but tearing off is a menu command.

Terminal.app can put the Cmd key in the WINDOW title. AFAIK there's no key to go directly to a particular TAB, but you can use Cmd-{ and Cmd-} for previous/next tab and Cmd-` to cycle.

Madness takes its toll.
Please have exact change.

You can tear off a Terminal.app tab without the menubar. Just click on the tab and drag down.
