Mosh

From the official website:

Remote terminal application that allows roaming, supports intermittent connectivity, and provides intelligent local echo and line editing of user keystrokes. Mosh is a replacement for SSH. It is more robust and responsive, especially over slow connections such as Wi-Fi, cellular, and long-distance.

Installation

Install the mosh package, or mosh-gitAUR for the latest revision.

Usage

Mosh has an undocumented command line option --predict=experimental which produces more aggressive echoing of local keystrokes. Users interested in low-latency visual confirmation of keyboard input may prefer this prediction mode.

Note: Mosh by design does not let you access session history, consider installing a terminal multiplexer such as tmux or GNU Screen.
