What is ConEmu?
Windows console emulator with tabs, which presents multiple consoles and simple GUI applications as one customizable GUI window with various features.
Initially, the program was created as a companion to Far Manager .
Today, ConEmu can be used with any other console application or simple GUI tools (like PuTTY for example). ConEmu is an active project, open to suggestions.
ConEmu starts a console program in hidden console window and provides an alternative customizable GUI window with various features:
- smooth and friendly window resizing;

- cursor: standard console (horizontal) or GUI (vertical);
- optional per-application settings (e.g. palette);
- vertical console buffer scrolling using the keyboard (BufferHeight mode);
