What is it?
Terminology is a new terminal emulator. It started life during a
vacation in Thailand in June of 2012. So it is young and fresh, so
it's not perfect, but it's getting there.
What does it do?
It emulates a slightly extended vt100 with some extensions and
bling thrown in.

- URL, file path and email address detection and link-handling
- Inline display of link content

The above list of features and then then some work currently,
with maybe some things not completely implemented yet. Much more
has yet to come, so this is not done by any means.
There are quite a range of nice features already supported,
ranging from the basic ones you'd expect, to things you never expected
of a terminal.
