Navicat - Desktop MySQL GUI

Navicat - the World's Best MySQL GUI for Windows, Linux & Mac OS X is a rather claimy title for a product like this. I don't know if it quite meets it's promises, but damn sure looks like it. You can do anything from stored procedures to views and table contraints if you MySQL Server installation allows it. Unfortunately this is not freeware or an open source product. But at least they give you a 30-day trial.

As I said, I did not test this thing throughoutly but it looks very promising to me at the moment. The only thing I am missing is the possibility to plan a database using ER diagramms to design databases.
