sakura is a terminal emulator based on GTK+ and VTE. It's a terminal emulator with few dependencies, so you don't need a full GNOME desktop installed to have a decent terminal emulator.

sakura supports keyboard bindings. They are configurable by setting the following properties in your sakura config file (~/.config/sakura/sakura.conf).
Accelerators can be set to any mask value from the GdkModifierType in gdktypes.h; see:
Mask values can be combined by ORing them.
For example, to set the delete tab accelerator to Ctrl + Shift:
because GDK_SHIFT_MASK has a value of 1 (1 << 0), and GDK_CONTROL_MASK has a value of 4 (1 << 2); ORing them together, you get 5.
I realise that this configuration is not so friendly to non-programmers, but it is a start. :)
For example, to set the add tab key to 'T':
Before sakura used keycodes instead of strings. They're still valid.
Ctrl + Shift + T -> New tab Ctrl + Shift + W -> Close current tab Ctrl + Shift + C -> Copy selected text Ctrl + Shift + V -> Paste selected text Ctrl + Left cursor -> Previous tab Ctrl + Right cursor -> Next tab Ctrl + [1-9] -> Switch to tab N (1-9) Ctrl + Shift + S -> Toggle scrollbar Ctrl + Shift + Mouse left button -> Open link F11 -> Fullscreen Shift + PageUp -> Move up through scrollback by page Shift + PageDown -> Move down through scrollback by page Ctrl + Shift + Up -> Move up through scrollback by line Ctrl + Shift + Down -> Move down through scrollback by line
You can also increase and decrease the font size in the GTK+ standard way (not configurable):
Ctrl + '+' -> Increase font size Ctrl + '-' -> Decrease font size
