  • tmux

    tmux source code

    Like others I can share my personal experience: I've started with xterm then moved to urxvt, and now I'm using st (from the suckless team who has other great programs like dwm or dmenu for example). Note that whatever terminal you're using, I would recommend trying tmux (a terminal multiplexer) if you haven't done it yet.
