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.
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.highlightColor: #fce94f URxvt.highlightTextColor: #0076a3 URxvt*font: xft:input:mono:size=10 URxvt.letterSpace: -3 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
Down to scroll line-by-line.
I use an extension that makes URLs into clickable links that will launch in my browser. Very handy for Weechat. You can use the same extension (matcher) to match any kind of text, actually. Need to set it up for Gopher and things too :3
It's configured with these lines in my Xresources files
URxvt.perl-ext: default,matcher URxvt.colorUL: #46a4ff URxvt.matcher.button: 1 URxvt.matcher.rend.0: Uline Bold fg8 bg1 URxvt.url-launcher: /usr/bin/firefox
