Submission + - Gate One 0.9 Released, Brings SSH to the Web (

Riskable writes: "Dan McDougall (full disclosure: That's me) just publicly released the source code to Gate One which is an HTML5-powered terminal emulator and SSH client. It is unique in that it doesn't require any browser plugins (it uses WebSockets) and supports multiple simultaneous terminals/SSH sessions in a single browser tab. It can resume user's sessions after being disconnected and supports both client and server-side session recording/playback (view as a log or like a video). Gate One can also be embedded into other web-based applications such as administration interfaces, serial port concentrators, virtual appliances, or whatever. Enjoy!"
