Sequel Pro

I have come across a lot of developers who deal with MySQL and use PHPMyAdmin for accessing and administrating both remote and local databases. If you're a Mac user, there is a native app called Sequel Pro, that like PHPMyAdmin is also free (although donations are encouraged).

Sequel pro offers number of features that provide an improved experience over the browser based alternative.

Some of the features that I use regularly include:

In short, if I am doing development involving MySQL, which is more often than not, I will be using Sequel Pro. It is a solid application that I would rate alongside more well known development tools like Transmit, iTerm, Textmate in terms of quality and functionality.

So, if you are sick of dealing with PHPMyAdmin in a browser and want a fast, free native alternative, give Sequel Pro a go.
