Check Out XMLTerm!

R. Saravanan writes, "As Mozilla approaches beta, XMLterm finally approaches alpha. Check out the new screenshots at On Linux/Solaris, XMLterm can now be compiled simply by setting the configure option --with-extensions=xmlterm. XMLterm can also be used as a powerful Javascript console (check out a screenshot).

If you are a Linux mozilla user who also uses xterms in some form, please try out the M14-compatible version of the XMLterm binaries, which may be downloaded from here. Remember this is pre-alpha software; so don't delete your xterm binaries just yet! There are still many bugs and unimplemented features, but any feedback on the 'feel' of XMLterm will be appreciated."

What happens with xmlterm if mozilla crashes when you're busy editing a file in vi (say) inside the xmlterm ?

If xmlterm dies too then it's a pretty risky thing to use. If it's a separate process that can "survive on its own", then it might be useful after all.

Must say, I like that "xcat" command though !
