Kitty terminal is awesome, and you should definitely try it.
Only thing I found tricky is how to bind termination of the running process (sending SIGINT on Ctrl+C) to a different key combination.
I like when all applications have consistent hotkeys. And different meaning of the most commonly used hotkey (copy) in all terminals always bothers me. I don't care about "history" and "traditions", switching your brain depending on currently open window is just inconvinient. So I use
ctrl+c to copy and
ctrl+shift+c for process interruption.
To fix that, add to kitty.conf:
map ctrl+c copy_to_clipboard map ctrl+v paste_from_clipboard map ctrl+shift+c send_text all \x03 # SIGINT
Note that there is also copyorinterrupt but for me it is even more inconsistent.
Take look at my config for more useful options.
PS: And by the way, if you want to get nice color scheme for Kitty, you could use Terminal Color Scheme Designer, export to
Termite and replace
