Is it still possible to add Terminology (extremely popular after its 0.4 release)?

I've actually come to like Chrome's Secure Shell app, pointed at local host. Sometimes the performance sucks (basically anything with a vertical split) but it's pretty good.

Otherwise, I've just stuck to xterm for the last few years. Got tired of all the others. (I used to collect terminal emulators.)

Tied between Xfce4-terminal and Terminator. Will use Terminator in Openbox and Terminal in Xfce.

I tend to use whatever is the default for the DE/WM. Since I use KDE more than others, I voted for Konsole.

I really like tilda. The popup feature is essential for me.

I wish I could vote for two. I use Yakuake when I just want quick access to the terminal, and I use Terminator when I really want to get something done. I like Yakuake normally if I am going to run something in the background. I might have to try some of these however, never heard of some of these

xterm, but compiled from source

$ ./configure --prefix=/pro --with-x --with-Xaw3d --disable-imake --enable-256-color --enable-wide-chars --disable-tek4014 --enable-vt-fonts --enable-tcap-fkeys --with-pcre --enable-readline-mouse --enable-dabbrev --with-icon-name=mini.xterm

/me is closely following the development and giving feedback to the author
I big plus of xterm, is that it ports to HP-UX and AIX without problems unlike some other emulators that would be perfect if they didn't have that many (linux) dependencies

stjerm FTW, the best, fastest and most stable dropdown terminal emulator (get the latest version from GitHub)!

ROXTerm is the best in windowed mode!
