There exists a similar app for Macintosh called NiftyTelnetSSH.

Also, some people may not know that if you run ssh-keygen, copy the resulting
file ~/.ssh/identity.pub to <remote host>:~/.ssh/authorized_keys, then you
can log in without typing in your password. May compromise security slightly,
but if it means that you migrate away from rcp, rsh, etc., that's still a big
win.
