I just use the default terminal, but try to learn shortcuts whenever I can. ctrl-r is my current favorites (reverse search)

That's not part of the terminal.

Fair point - I guess my point is that the terminal itself doesn't dictate how powerful or not you can be... but yes, that's more like bash vs. whatever.

Cool retro term is my favourite I guess, but iterm2 is the one that I use. It's better than the trash that comes with the Mac and it hardly ever crashes.

It is too risky to trust any other third party terminal program.

Probably because THEY are on to us. Better safe than sorry.
