gnome-terminal: also has drag-n-drop (it just requests the text/plain version of whatever was dropped), also highlights URIs and email addresses on the terminal (clicking opens GNOME's preferred URI handler or mailer), and also has --use-factory which reduces the marginal cost of each additional terminal.

My roommate in college had a diskless PC/XT and used NCSA Telnet to work on Unix hosts. He even browsed the web, using the Tektronix terminal for porn^Wgraphics. Pretty amazing piece of software.
