    2. oterm is a web browser unix terminal. It serves a console so you can access your server from anywhere in the world where you have an Internet connection. It effectively is an xterm in a browser. It emulates xterm commands, which are very similar to vt100 commands.
    3. SSHy is a fast and responsive SSHv2 web client with end-to-end encryption supplied by SJCL. SSHy implements a minimal subset of the SSHv2 protocol that provides and controls a pseudo-terminal. The terminal front-end interface is provided by xterm.js.
