I've been trying to move to kitty from xterm, since xterm has some graphical glitches running on Wayland whereas kitty "just works" -- thanks a lot for that.
One thing I noticed during use is that making selections via left-click felt much more sluggish compared to xterm. It seems xterm updates the selection on left-click press, whereas kitty only on release, so there's a visual delay lower bounded by the release time.
Apart from reduced visual delay, on-press has the ergonomic advantage of being able to finely select the ending character by left-dragging, as opposed to repeatedly clicking.
It would be nice if kitty had this behaviour, or at least an option to enable it :)

Sorry, that's my mistake -- what I meant was s/left/right/g. If you try to extend by right click, the extension happens when you release the mouse button, and doesn't update when dragging the right button (I imagine these would be repeat events?)
