The Suzuki GSXR of terminals. Or your ditzy, blonde high school cheerleader; fast and pretty but not a lot going on under the hood. Eschews a negative developmental philosophy towards including said functionality, with the official reason cited in project documentation as "Not within the realm of a terminal emulator" and ostensibly, "best left up to other tools such as terminal multiplexers" [such as screen or tmux]. Which is unfortunate when you factor in speed against terminal with the functionality built in vs their reliance on 3rd party tools: tmux on alacritty: 'find /usr' time: 3.234s, cpu: 72% tmux on konsole: find /usr' time: 1.777s, cpu: 96% See issue here.

Some people feel that Terminology has too many features that are not suited for a terminal but for a window manager instead. Things like viewing thumbnails, watching videos and gifs and other flashy things like that feel just like eye candy and should not be part of a terminal emulator. See More
Many terminal applications, such as OS X's Terminal.app and iTerm2 (among others), all claim xterm or xterm- variants as their $TERM and aim for support of xterm's escape sequences. Many command-line applications will assume or even hard-code escape-sequences and behavior for xterm and those terminals emulating it. See More

Konsole can monitor activities and notify the user through system notifications when a certain activity happens. This is a very customizable feature too: you can write scripts that can use this feature and notify you for whatever you want. See More
ROXTerm includes a configuration manager which can easily be run by selecting Configure... in the terminal's menu, or by simply running roxterm-config. You can then easily swap configuration files with other users, manage profiles, and customize things like color schemes or keyboard shortcuts. See More
