I voted Lilyterm
I use a few different things, but I enjoy playing with Lilyterm sometimes.
A few things are a little more kewl the way they work, and a couple of things I like the way say, xterm operates.
All in all you just need to be conscious to know which one you've got running when moving between terminal emulators.
I also really like Remmina
just using local ssh connections.

Are we counting rxvt-unicode / urvxt as "rxvt"?

Notwithstanding Snark's question, urxvt should be on the list.

Jeremy clarified it last week when he asked for feedback about suggested nominees.
rxvt, urxvt and mrxvt are put in one family.
