Everyone that's still using iTerm, check out iTerm2. It seems at least as good as iTerm and, in many ways, far superior.

Agree with darxider - do something like time find ~/. and see the speed difference. With the refresh rate set to its lowest on iTerm, it's considerably slower. With the refresh rate set to its default, it's way slower. And with the refresh rate set to its fastest, just go ahead and take a nap. 256 colors is awesome, full screen is awesome, but the speed is depressing. Unfortunately, I can't get my font-of-choice to be recognized by X11, so I'm still stuck bouncing back and forth between Terminal.app and iTerm.

it's grown up a heck of a lot. sorry terminal.app :D

Terminal.app is twice faster in running "ls -lR ~" than iTerm. I don't like antialiasing for terminal. It makes my eyes go fuzzy. The only feature that I miss in Terminal.app is the fullscreen. That's quite sexy.

Latest test release seems broken. Cuts of the bottom of the letters for me.

Until Terminal.app supports 256 color terminals, I'll be using iTerm exclusively. The ability to command-click links to open them (rather than right-clicking) is another reason I'll stick with iTerm.

Crotchety choosy Unix supremacists choose iTerm!

and it has anti aliased fonts too :)

Terminal has tabs! Sorry, iTerm! :D

Tabs. Full Screen mode. Anti-aliased fonts. Multiple sessions stored in that can be accessed via hot keys. If you use "ssh" or "vim" on Mac OS X, you should switch to iTerm. Excellent UTF-8 support. I would buy a license if it wasn't open source. I need to make a donation!

A tabbed terminal sounds awfully nice, but I decided to stick it through with Terminal.app so now I use that with GNU Screen for my "tabs".
Not quite as cool, but functional. :)
