Urxvt

Rxvt Unicode is currently my preferred terminal emulator. I was using Xterm for a bit (kinda just prefer to use plain X and GNU things if they do the job fine), but it annoyed me that it wouldn't resize the content of the window when the window resized.

Configuration

I configure Urxvt in my Xresources file (mine's in .config, but the default location is in your home folder).

URxvt*scrollBar:            false
URxvt.internalBorder:       10
URxvt.url-select.underline: true
URxvt.url-launcher:         /usr/bin/firefox
URxvt.matcher.button:       1
URxvt.highlightColor:       #fce94f
URxvt.highlightTextColor:   #0076a3
URxvt*font:                 *-fixed-*-*-*-18-*
URxvt.keysym.Shift-Up:      command:\033]720;1\007
URxvt.keysym.Shift-Down:    command:\033]721;1\007

Nothing too exciting in my config, but the last two commands let you use Shift+Up/Down to scrolll line-by-line.
