      As Chip said, UTF-16 is rather baked into the stuff we do. The console host does use UTF-16 somewhere in there. :P We just have the matter of dealing with code pages throughout the history of computing existence that causes us heartburn every time we think about how to fix this. :( It’s definitely something that we would like to look into on our backlog.

      What I want is for PowerShell to let me set a default text encoding when piping. And yes. That I want to be UTF8.

      This is a bigger "thing" in Windows because UTF16 is really heavily baked into (e.g.) .NET. Still, a lot of other OSS tools assume UTF8 or in some cases don't even understand UTF16 at all no matter what you do.

        Ability to switch tabs with hotkeys also desirable. Optimally the hotkeys are user-customizable as well (e.g. I like alt+[123456789...] but others may want something else)
