Making Ctrl+C copy text in gnome-terminal?

Is there such a terminal where I can edit the text like in usual text area, i.e.

Copy - Ctrl+C, paste - Ctrl+V and so on?

Good example is console in Chrome or in Firefox.

Then I don't need to remember all these shortcut keys.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I don't know of any. However, you can change the shortcuts manually: Terminal > Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts

Then set Copy to Ctrl + C, and Ctrl + V for paste.

P.S. how do you get those "keys" to show up? [Where they look like buttons, as opposed to text]

Most shells use keyboard shortcuts like ctrl+c for other things, so if you use it top copy text, then that will break basic functionality, which is why gnome-terminal uses ctrl+shift+c, for instance.
