Guake Terminal is a Quake-style terminal for GNOME made with PyGTK. Its works like Tilda (from GNOME), Kuake and Yakuake(from KDE).
Is usefully for any user that like a quick access to a terminal emulator.
Tilda is better than guake because: + Tilda renames tab to host, you've connected to. Guake betters than tilda in: - tilda can't customize hotkeys for tab switching etc - flickering window (visual bell) can't be disabled - in unity it hears Ctrl+Alt+NumPad1 and moves and resizes to left bottom corner and never goes by itself Both of terminals have: + call term-app hotkey customize - you can't get actions alert on tab label like in stock gnome terminal - both sites of these apps are down (500 error on tilda and JIT error on guake)
