In general, I agree with that statement. Most of the terminals are
based on vte and that has had known security issues in the past. I
typically use rxvt-unicode which has minimal dependencies and does not
use vte thus avoiding its bugs. It also runs in daemon mode, so you
can start new terminal windows up faster and decrease memory usage.
It's useful on older computers. I haven't had any issues with it.
Have you seen any serious issues with it documented? Thanks.
