I don't use tabs either.
Gnome-terminal may be more bloated, but it's faster. If that sort of thing matters for you.
time seq 1 8 |while read i;do find;done
Just doing find on my home directory. It's all in cache so it's not bound by disk i/o any.
And that is gnome-terminal using the 'DejaVu Sans Mono Book' font with the 'best shapes' font rendering vs whatever is the default for xterm.
Although it's slightly faster opennning up...
time seq 1 18 |while read i;do xterm -e ls ;done
$ xterm -v
Gnome gnome-terminal 2.14.2
