terminal emulator

Hi. Can anyone recommend a terminal emulator that doesn't use vte but still has configurable font size and good font rendering?
I have xfce 4.14 and gnome 3.34 and somewhat frustrated with vte.
xterm and rxvt have terrible font rendering.

Re: terminal emulator

gnome-terminal and xfce4-terminal are based on gtk library called vte.

Well there is st which is really lightweight (a bit too much for my taste, but you can change the font), and there is qterminal.
Have a look at this:

I settled on Alacritty. It's GPU accelerated. Scrolling is very fast.
