  • Any terminals as lightweight as st which have tab support and scrolling?
    Alacritty is a lightweight and fast terminal emulator that supports scrolling but not tabs. Just in case you're interested in that combination.
    The suggestion is noted. I'll still use a terminal with tabs though because I dont enjoy using tabbed.

    Alacritty é um emulador de terminal que se encaixa quase perfeitamente com Window Managers. Pois ele não tem nenhuma opção ou menu na tela. E toda a sua configuração é feita através de arquivos de configuração.
