Ever wanted to access a UNIX terminal from, say, an Internet cafe or airport kiosk? Check out AjaxTerm. It's a Python app that uses the magic of Ajax to let you use a full-fledged terminal in any web browser. All it takes is a machine running Linux, UNIX, Mac OS X, or Cygwin on Windows and an Apache web server. It even supports terminal colors. It's only as secure as a regular terminal session, but the AjaxTerm web site has instructions for securing it with HTTPS.
