sshortcut... Open ssh connections in a new terminal window, right from the OS X dashboard. Thanks to keychain support and bookmarks you don't even need to remember your passwords and account details.

Only tested on OS X 10.4.11, so I'm very interested in feedback and bug reports.

What's New

Version 0.2b adds bookmarks and fixes a timeout bug when connecting to a slow server.


Mac OS X 10.4 or later

Well, it wasn't something I NEEDED right now, but I felt bad for the author - saying he was "very interested in feedback and bug reports".

Downloaded and installed in 10.6.8 (iMac Core Duo) and 10.7.5 (MacBook Pro Core i7). It works. It's a widget, so I'm not particularly concerned about stability, etc.

One caveat - it apparently won't succeed in an initial connection attempt - the remote server must already have an entry in your ssh servers list in order to connect successfully. This is not a huge problem given the simplicity of this program, but it is something of which one should be aware.
