Currently, AppFresh recognizes iTerm2 as iTerm (prob'ly because of the app dirname). Ideas?

Latest version is now far better than both iTerm and Terminal (tested on Snow Leopard and Lion).

brh, I encourage you to take another look at this program. A friend of mine and I have been evaluating it and it seems faster even than Apple's native terminal. There was a release last Thursday which may have fixed the issue you were seeing.

This fork of iTerm is reportedly supposed to address the (abysmal) performance of iTerm… So far it has performed even more slowly for me, which is pretty difficult to believe. Hopefully this gets taken care of, iTerm would be an amazing terminal emulator if not for the mad performance hit…
