GNOME Serial is an RS232 port terminal application that is specifically designed and integrated to work well with the GNOME desktop. It supports features like managing multiple serial ports at once each in separate tabs, notifications of data events with the GNOME notification system, forwarding a local RS232 data connection over a network, and many other advanced features.

Although GNOME Serial is first being designed for the GNOME desktop on Linux, hopefully in the future it will be ported to work just as well on different desktop environments and different operating systems.
