What do you think about replacing gnome-terminal with sakura. Sakura has so many more features (right click for tabs, copy, paste, etc.)

right click for tabs, copy, paste, etc.

GNOME-Terminal has all these things too.

I don't think that's a very good idea at all. Having never heard of Sakura until now, I tried it out with somewhat high expectations but the whole thing just seemed like an unpolished clone of GNOME Terminal. Not surprising, considering they're both based on libvte, but what's the point here?

It seems like the only advantage of Sakura is that it lacks the various dependencies GNOME Terminal has, but that point is pretty moot when GNOME is the default desktop environment.
