If you use VIM and enjoy the command line, make sure you check it out. I think this plugin is much better and far more intuitive than 'conque shell.'
Special hint: try pressing control-A control-A when the embedded shell is displayed.
If you don't use VIM, here's why you might want to try it:
- You are a touch typist
- You want to move around extremely rapidly in files without taking your fingers off of the keyboard
- You want to do incredibly powerful bulk edits
