Said about Zsh as an alternative


Compared to BASH, Zsh has support for many more plugins and addons of the sort. There exists a framework for this very purpose called "Oh-My-Zsh" and it can be used to add things like themes and support for command auto-complete. Zsh is pretty much just BASH but with more features built on top.
