OSX SSH Client Alternative

I was looking for an alternative to using the default OSX SSH client built into the terminal, something that would be similar to Putty for windows.
I wanted something with bookmarks and ideally something free (because I’m cheap), unless something really did something super for me in the world of secure terminals I can’t see a reason to pay for it.

I was also getting annoyed by the issue of the built in terminal using my mac account by default when i tried to ssh as i would always forget to put in the “-l root” or “ssh user@” or similar before hitting an IP. If this is your single issue however there is a solution.
Which means that once you have that alias setup, it isn’t ideal however.

I ended up with iTerm2 as my choice
