Benchmarks "Linux has an abundance of excellent terminal applications. Interestingly, I could not find any decent comparison of their text display performance. Since I use the command line a lot, I want text output that is as fast as possible. When you compile a large project, you don't want the console output to be the limiting factor. I took the burden on me to do a comprehensive comparison of the text through of all possible terminals."

Why is xfce4-terminal missing? On my system, it needs only about 60% of the time konsole takes to display the file. Is it that similar to gnome-terminal in the inside that it does not worth listing separately?

xfce4-terminal is a nifty program, but it uses the same widget for rendering gnome-terminal uses:
