I am very fond of Vim's
:terminal, though whenever I use Ctrl-w (expecting to erase the last typed word at prompt), Vim captures the key press and enters pane navigation mode. So I end up having to esc and then perform multiple backspaces. This wastes precious milliseconds of life.
I tried Ctrl-Backspace (default behavior in many GUIs) and also nothing. What could be a workaround?
