ZOC is a powerful and well-established terminal emulator and telnet client, well known for its outstanding user interface with tabbed multi session support.
ZOC lets you access character based hosts using Secure Shell (SSH/SSH2), telnet, modem, ISDN and most other means of communication.
ZOC can be used to connect to Unix/Linux hosts and shell accounts, BBS's, IBM mainframes (via TN3270 or TN5250), Cisco CLI (command line interface) or internet muds.

TinyShell is ideal for anyone who wants command line access to their server, but is limited by HTTP access. Furthermore TinyShell comes with a native MySQL command line client, that some say is even better than MySQL’s own command line interface. TinyShell works in all modern browsers, including IE 7+, FF 3+, Chrome, Safari and it even works on iPhone and iPad. It is completely module based and supports multi line commands, tabbing and much more. Browse the plugins section for more details on the default behavior and functionality.

sakura is a terminal emulator based on GTK and VTE. It's a terminal emulator with few dependencies, so you don't need a full GNOME desktop installed to have a decent terminal emulator. Current terminal emulators based on VTE are gnome-terminal, XFCE Terminal, TermIt and a small sample program included in the vte sources. The differences between sakura and the last one are that it uses a notebook to provide several terminals in one window and adds a contextual menu with some basic options. No more no less. see also: https://launchpad.net/sakura

csshX is a tool to allow simultaneous control of multiple SSH sessions. It will attempt to create an SSH session to each remote host in separate Terminal.app windows. A master window will also be created. All keyboard input in the master will be sent to all the slave windows.
