A new iTerm2 fork
Authored by: tremolux on Feb 07, '11 09:21:55AM
One reason for using iTerm that I haven't seen mentioned is character echoing speed. When I am compiling large software packages, the input character echo slows to a crawl in all my Terminal windows. Perhaps I missed an option or environment variable, but I found this performance degradation (with low CPU utilization) frustrating. Not a problem with iTerm. (However, I did get bitten by the unset COMMAND_MODE variable with iTerm, but that was easily fixed.)
