I hereby declare Kitty terminal as the discovery of my week! It is GPU accelerated, has built-in file/dir diff, has the cleanest tab/window split UI I have seen, although the latter is subjective.

But the cherry on top is the fact that with a single keystroke, I can open my entire scroll back buffer in any arbitrary program of my choice(currently 'bat'). Amazing work!


Kitty also has some really obvious (in retrospective) stuff, like the Unicode picker (with search by name!), file and URL picker, regex matcher!

I like konsole, and will continue to use it via Yakuake, but kitty is my new favourite!
