What is Xfce4-Terminal?

Terminal is a modern terminal emulator for the Unix/Linux desktop - primarily for the Xfce desktop environment. We developed it because we saw the need for a lightweight and easy to use terminal emulator in the Xfce desktop environment, that doesn’t require the user to install the GNOME platform, but still provides a worthy alternative to the GNOME terminal emulator.

Xfce Terminal can be run with --drop-down and --fullscreen and bound to a shortcut like F12 to run just like Guake.

Maintains the majority of the feature-set and customization with none of the Python redundancy/slowness. Do keep in mind, however, that ligatures are not supported.
