9 * Type in your native language! Gate One supports Unicode, non-English keyboard layouts, and localized strings (internationalization or i18n).
10 * Natural copy & paste: Highlight text and use your browser's native context menu. On Linux desktops you can also middle-click-to-paste.
11 * Terminal sessions can be resumed even if the browser is closed or disconnected. They can also be resumed from a completely different computer.

13 * Gate One can be embedded into--and completely controlled by--other applications. A few lines of JavaScript is all it takes!
14 * Many authentication mechanisms are supported: Anonymous, Kerberos (Single Sign-On with Active Directory!), PAM, Google Auth, and there's an OpenID-like WebSocket API for applications embedding Gate One (see the chat app in the tests directory for an example of how it works).
15 * Gate One is easy to customize: Themes and plugins can add features or override just about anything. In fact, Gate One's SSH functionality is implemented entirely via a plugin.
16 * Plugins can be written in any combination of Python, JavaScript, or CSS.
17 * The Gate One server can be stopped & started without users losing their running terminal applications (even SSH sessions stay connected!).
18 * The SSH plugin allows users to duplicate sessions without having to re-enter their username and password (it re-uses the existing SSH tunnel). It also supports key-based authentication and includes an SSH identity manager that supports RSA, DSA, ECDSA, and even X.509 certificates.
19 * The Logging plugin includes a Log Viewer that allows users to sort, view, and even export recordings of their terminal sessions to self-contained HTML files that can be shared. Demonstrating anything on the command line can be as simple as performing the task and exporting the log!

20 * The Playback plugin allows users to "rewind" and play back their connected terminal sessions in real-time, just like a video! This can be done via the playback controls or by holding the shift key while scrolling.
