Badges are displayed in the background of a terminal and can display a variety of information about the terminal session.
Tilix supports the use of command line actions to have the running instance execute an action that you would typically do through the user interface, for example splitting a terminal.
Like many terminals, Tilix allows clicking on a specific content to perform actions. For example, clicking on a hyperlink opens it in the browser. Tilix takes this a step further and allows the user to define custom links and actions based on regular expressions.

Automatically switching profiles based on certain conditions which is useful in a variety of situations such as when switching users, connecting to different hosts or changing to sensitive directories.
Always have a terminal ready to go at the press of a key. Like the eponymous console in the 3D game Quake, this feature enables a terminal to appear at the top of the screen at a touch of key.
In addition to the built-in themes, custom themes can be defined to enable complete control over the look and style of the terminal window.
Identifying terminals at a glance can be challenging when multiple terminals are displayed simultaneously. Tilix supports customizing the titles of terminals, sessions and applications to make this process easier.
Triggers are defined as regular expressions that is executed against content in the terminal. When a trigger matches content, a corresponding action is executed.
Tilix requires that the GTK VTE widget be properly configured in order to work optimally. Unfortunately a number of Linux distributions such as Ubuntu fail to do so by default requiring manual intervention to correct.
