MacOS Terminal not as good as KDE Konsole

While the Mac OS/X built-in Terminal application (v1.5) looks very well and works OK on the surface, it's nowhere near as productivity-enhancing as the terminal emulator I'm used to, Konsole.

Some of the things I'm missing or disliking in Terminal most are:
  • When double-clicking on text, slashes are considered separators, so that one can never select a qualified file name, such as /home/ernst/.vimrc.
  • When you start typing, the selection is lost.
  • Support for tabs.
  • No drop-down with a configurable list of sessions, both local and remote.
