Best Tabbed SSH terminal/ tabbed Putty

My first choice was Putty-Connection manager. The problem is it suffers weird issues. Even if u solve all of them you endup with Alt + Tab issue. I.e. you hit on Alt tab and still stay on the putty connection manager.

Then i tried MTPutty. The UI is very good. But it suffers the same Alt Tab issue of Putty connection manager

Then Poderosa/ CMDER. They dont suffer Alt tab issue but they cant remember the sessions either. Again waste.

Couple of days back i came across nd-putty. The only problem with it was the font rendering issue. The fonts render blurred. I contacted the deverloper and finally narrowed down that its Windows 10 issue. When you put magnification of display to 125% (right click > display etc). Finally i got this resolved. its basically DPI issue. Right click on the putty-nd; in properties click on the tab: compatibility > Disable display scaling on high DPI settings. And this did the magic.

Now i swithced to PuttyND.

I recall something Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said 50 years ago: "If you can't fly, then run. If you can't run, then walk. If you can't walk, then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward." This advice is timeless
