My main gripe with screen is its scrollback buffer. As a pentester, the output i receive is obviously incredibly important, so an easy way to view it is imperative. Apparently there is a way to hack mouse scrolling into terminal. Basically it utilizes a plugin written for a scripting agent that interfaces into terminal.app.
1. install SIMBL: http://www.culater.net/software/SIMBL/SIMBL.php
2. install MouseTerm: https://bitheap.org/mouseterm/
3. restart terminal, make sure "send mouse events" is checked in the "shell" menu option.
4. start screen
Basically its a plugin that converts the scroll up movement of your mouse/touchpad to up/down arrow keys and sends that to the terminal. This effectively allow you to quickly scroll through screens scrollback buffer quickly by flicking your fingers.
