On Ubuntu it looks normal, only the size is a bit different from the GTK+ or Qt applications, but I manage to make them equal with a bit of changes on DPI and decimal font size values (like 10.5).

^ yes, but an electron-based terminal emulator? who needs this sort of overkill? next thing you know, people will complain that "Linux isn't lightweight anymore like it used to be". *smh*

also just for the record I'd like to say that for decades there's been a terminal font called Terminus.

Well, I think the same of GNOME, but in the end, it's all about choices... and experimentation too - an Electron based terminal emulator is overkill, but plugins for it easy to write. It may attract enthusiasts who may come up with some bright new ideas

I think MinTTY should also be part of this category.

Sakura if my hardware can support a compositor. Otherwise, urxvt. (gotta have that transparency)

Terminology hands down! Love it's customization, look, & feel.
Really like Guake a lot too though... that Quake-style drop-down sure is handy!

Terminology. It uses the Enlightenment Foundation Libraries and Elementary. The 1.1.1 version is the most recent version that will build with the dependencies in the Devuan ASCII and Debian Stretch repositories. It is lightweight with plenty of settings.

Another vote for Sakura. It's sufficiently lightweight, and is easy to configure.

Voted GNOME Terminal. It works okay, displays fonts fine, and the keyboard shortcuts are mostly acceptable.

I think people who like VTE terminals might also check out Tilix. It has some interesting features.

MATE Terminal, even though I'm not using MATE.

It's solidly functional, doesn't get in the way and I like that I can right-click on a URL and open it in a browser.
