Xfce Terminal is based on the Vte terminal widget library, just like
gnome-terminal. Vte is probably not the fastest terminal emulation library on
earth, but it's one of the best when it comes to Unicode support, and not to
forget, it's actively developed. That said, performance is still an important
issue for a terminal emulator and Vte with font-antialiasing enabled can be
very slow even on decent systems. Xfce Terminal therefore offers a possibility
to explicitly disable anti-aliasing for the terminal font. If you are
experiencing problems with the terminal rendering speed, you might want to
disable the anti-aliasing for the terminal font.
