What is the best terminal program for Cisco console/telnet?

Would like to know what everyone is using for their console and telnet connections. I've used Hyperterminal, which was not great for scrolling back in the history as the output would become garbled, and Reflections, which requires key-mapping because certain key combinations were not natively transferred to the session. Looking for the best and most compatible program.

On Windows, I use PuTTY or OpenSSH. On UNIX, I just stick with the standard telnet for telnet, OpenSSH for ssh, and I like cu (or tip) for console access.
