[X11] Looking for a modern terminal with tabs, powerline-daemon support, etc


I use Tilix and it is almost perfect. Almost, because it does not support closing tabs on middle click.

So I look for the replacement with such features:

  • tabs on top (which can be closed on middle click)
  • compatibility with powerline through powerline-deamon
  • custom shortcuts
  • select & copy (+ paste) capabiities
  • not sure if such capability exists: ability to select characters text editor style, by pressing Shift + (+ Ctrl) + Arrows
  • fast

Any recommendations?

In no particular order:

  • kitty
  • alacritty
  • wezterm
    FWIW I use kitty, do not know about powerline, but it does the rest.
