Well, iTerm looks functional, and kudos for maintaining a free app... ...but the reverse video display (Black background) is really stinks and annoying to me, this looks from another age... I DON'T want anything looking like a DOS window (yuck!) I understand some people are attached to this old look, but users should have choice. I preferred to pay for Ionsole since it had color profiles and went for that instead. I am not issuing a rating, this is just a comment

Oooops! Please DISREGARD my comment! I got it all wrong, posted this on the wrong window, for the wrong app, and I cannot find how to edit my post. Sorry for the noise!

Really annoying bug with this and JiTouch. When using TipTap to toggle through tabs in a web browser, every so often it'll open TotalTerminal instead of the next tab when you don't want it to. No way I can see of stopping it besides quitting Terminal when switching tabs in a browser. The issue really needs to be fixed. (If JiTouch offered the flexibility of being disabled from certain apps, like BTT for example, then that would be a solution, but it does not, and BTT's TipTap isn't as good as JiTouch's.)

Downloaded this having had the old Visor and thought .o0(I wonder if it's been updated to make Pin triggerable with a keystroke/gesture), initially pleased to see it in the preferences, but then tried it, didn't work and now "Pin", in the new supposedly improved version, isn't even selectable in the menulet at all meaning "Pin" has actually got worse in that it is unusable so, sigh, had better try to go back to the old version...
