iTerm2 An Awesome Mac OS X Terminal Replacement

A few of my favorite features include split pane views:
There is also a very nice autocomplete feature, where commands are shown in a dropdown window:
Other features include:
Mouseless copy – allows text to be selected based on search results, using tab for forward text selection and shift-tab for reverse selection.
Seearches within a window support regular expressions.
A paste history is handy if you are copy/pasting text numerous times within a session.
Instant replay offers the option to “go back in time” if you will, and view session output that would otherwise be lost.
