A new version of iTerm is out today that brings some very noticeable speed and font rendering improvements. If you tried iTerm before and didn’t like it because it felt slow and the display appeared ever-so-slightly fuzzy, get this update and see that things are looking a lot better. It now looks and feels just as fast as Terminal…plus it has tabs and other niceties that Terminal doesn’t.
Try it and feel the improvement.
And while we’re on this topic, does anyone have any intel on Leopard packing a new Terminal?
