KiTTY is one of the best open source telnet/SSH clients, which grew out of another popular PuTTY client and was discontinued in 2007. In addition to the fact that KiTTY is a complete clone, it also includes many unique features that have not only significantly expanded the functionality of the terminal, but also increased the convenience of work. These include a built-in console chat server running on port 1987, ZModem, link support, tools to change the appearance of the terminal, and the ability to integrate into CygWin. All this functionality and features make this client one of the most popular in the world. It is also important that this program, like its predecessor, is completely free of charge.

- Ability to set up hotkeys for frequently used commands;
- you can assign an icon to each individual session;
