Compare Navicat to other MySQL GUI tools?
Posted on 2008-02-06
I am new to PHP and MySQL, though I am learning at a good pace. I have Adobe Web Premium CS3 and desire to move into dynamic, database driven websites using PHP and MySQL. While I have been successful thus far using phpMyAdmin for working with MySQL DBs, I would much prefer to have an easy-to-use (possibly wizard-driven) and attractive GUI for creating and managing MySQL DBs.
My budget is "around" $100 for a commercial product.
I have looked at Navicat and SQLyog MySQL GUI, as well as SQL Toolkit for MySQL and MySQL Administrator, though I have tried none yet.
It seems Navicat is the most popular, but I am open to other suggestions and would like to know pros and cons, as well as differences between the product you prefer vs. Navicat.
