Tilda is a GTK+ terminal emulator. It is based on the VTE terminal emulator widget underlying GNOME Terminal. Its design was inspired from consoles in computer games, such as Quake, which slide down from the top of the screen when a key is pressed, typically the tilde, and slide back up when the key is pressed again.
Running Tilda can be faster than launching a new terminal with a keyboard shortcut because the program is already loaded into memory; it can be useful to people who frequently find themselves opening and closing terminals.
