Does a top-down terminal exist for Mac OS, similar to Guake, YaKuake, or Tilda?

Have you tried those options with X11? –  user10547 Mar 11 '10 at 0:09

Try Visor - it provides a nice "top-down" terminal like you can find in fps game and also some other enhancements.

I love Visor. (2 more to go). –  Josh K Mar 11 '10 at 0:28
On any new Mac, Visor is consistently one of the first programs I install. Set a keyboard shortcut to enable showing/hiding the Terminal and you're off to the races. I prefer fading it in rather than sliding down, but that's just me. –  Scottie Mar 11 '10 at 9:20
yeah! is great, now called totalTerminal –  juanpablo Oct 12 '11 at 0:11
The default window has only 24 lines, how to change the default setting? –  jackode Dec 5 '13 at 1:40
