    I use terms with a low transparency (~10%) so that I can see slow loading web pages behind it render, so I can watch other overlapped terminals displaying some sort of continuous output (e.g. make test or tail -f), and also so that I can easily copy down something in the background (e.g. if I've been reading an article about some coding thing I can easily copy it down).

    I lose a small bit of usability, but nothing tragic, and I do feel like I gained something worthwhile. Of course I'll probably turn it off soon and never worry about it again.
