Guake - Quake-style terminal for GNOME

A Quake-style terminal is a drop-down terminal which can be shown/hidden just like the console in Quake (and most of the first-person shooter games out there), using the press of a key (~ in Quake). Guake is a terminal application written in GTK which uses the F12 keyboard shortcut by default to show or hide it.

Guake features transparency, tabs, tray icon, configurable shortcuts, fullscreen mode and allows you to change terminal size, transparency level, appearance, font size and default shell interpreter.
