Kitty ( not to be confused with KiTTY ) is a powerful, cross-platform GPU-based terminal emulator. It offloads rendering to the GPU and uses OpenGL for fast, cross-platform performance with built-in tiling layouts as well as graphic, unicode and font ligature support.
- Supports all modern terminal features: graphics (images), unicode, true-color, OpenType ligatures, mouse protocol, focus tracking, bracketed paste and more. - Supports tiling multiple terminal windows side by side in different layouts, no need for tmux . - Can be controlled from scripts or the shell prompt, even over SSH. - Extensible via Kittens framework for creating small terminal apps. - Supports startup sessions to let you set layout, working directories and apps to run at startup. - Cross-platform: works on Linux and macOS and trivially portable to other Unix-like platforms. - Allows you to open the scrollback buffer in a separate window using arbitrary apps.

After using iTerm2 for years, i found that recent version are consuming around 60% GPU when just running htop. After switching to kitty, it's all normal and blazing fast. Big community. Found my answers after few minutes. Happy with that switch
