I run urxvt and konsole, both have their place, but konsole is my favorite because of the ctrl+shift+v paste function which helps alot when using wget to grab tarballs from the net.

Although yakuake is an awesome konsole emulator which calls a terminal from the top of the screen, it is much easier to call and hide for when it is needed.

I rather use kwin's window shortcut ability :)

You can paste from the X clipboard in any terminal using the keyboard shortcut Shift-Insert, including in urxvt :)

[edit]
You could also have some fun with the program xclip, which lets you manipulate the X clipboard directly from e.g. scripts. That would allow you to use the following command to download the last URL copied to the clipboard:

wget  $(xclip -o)

Because the insert key is in various location on my many keyboards the other sequence is preferred.

You do have a good recommendation about playing with xclip, there is much that can be done with it. Once you get used to the many functions xclip proved to be more useful than other ciipboard utilities.

i've never used yakuake, and your description (and its name) intrigued me, so I just installed it - pretty cool idea. I'm more Gnomish, though, so I may have to find another way to do that...

You can have a look at xmodmap and set another shortcut (maybe it's possible within X as well)
