Serial is a modern terminal designed to make working with servers, network equipment, and embedded hardware easier for engineers and system administrators. Built from scratch for OS X, Serial eliminates the need to search for and install drivers in order to work with most USB to serial adapters and other serial-port devices. Other powerful features include full terminal emulation so you can use screen-based programs including emacs, vi, or nano, or navigate the menus needed to configure network devices.

Wow. This app should be in every network admin's toolbox. This is the most Mac-like of any terminal i've tried. I thought i'd test the claim it works with just about any USB adapter, so I dug up an old el-cheapo adapter I could never find Mac drivers for (it uses a CH341 chip) and plugged it in. Instantly recognized. Cool. I also tried it with a PL2303-based adapter, and it worked. I deleted the vendor-supplied driver for the PL2303 adapter- and it still worked- and now unplugging the adapter while a terminal is open doesn't crash my Mac! The emulation is flawless, worked with emacs and make menuconfig on a Linux box over the console port. Just remember to set TERM=vt100 on the box you're logging into. I'd like to see a "send text file" option like some of the other terminals, and this app doesn't yet have a hex view option.
