TeraTerm Pro + SSH


Best things about it:  It behaves like a true windows app (you can
dynamically resize the window and it resizes the content well) and it
does English/Japanese/Russian.  Despite the fact that I don't use
Japanese or Russian, I still respect that it does it.

Cons: It only does SSH 1 and SSH 1.5.  It does not do SSH 2.0.
Depending on your implementation of SSH, this may matter.  OpenSSH has a
1.5 backwards compatibilty mode with no security issues (AFAIK) and
that's what I use.
