I'm not sure if this is a change to chrome or a regression with 0.2.7, but in Chrome 21.0.1180.49 beta-m there is no option to paste when right clicking on the terminal window.

Bah, well that was an ugly workaround anyway. This whole copy/paste problem is tiresome. Damn operating systems. There's got to be a better way. I think we'll find it eventually.

Paste-mode button that bubbles the ctrl-V one time then resets.

this is really the only thing missing from the terminal for me 🎱

Recommend close: paste works in Chrome 31 - from context menu.

Not working as of today in Chrome 46 and latest GitHub version (0.2.15) (on Windows)

not working today in Chrome-51 (linux)

Seeing as this has been open for 4 years, I would imagine that no work is being done in this regard. Does anyone know of any other tty emulator in javascript that can be embedded in a web page ?

See this gist for user.js code which enables copy/paste in Firefox (as of v50.0.2) and Chrome (as-of v53) :

In Firefox, you ususally have to left-click in the window immediately before right-clicking to get to the context menu.
