    very good and handy tool

    There was a need to work with the MS SQL database, but I did not want to install and understand the complex SQL Management Studio program, and this product turned out to be very easy to install and use. For more then 2 month i've used the tool haven't came across any issues.

5 Open-Source SQL IDEs for You to Learn and Explore
Just over half the age of Squirrel, HeidiSQL has been my personal favorite for the past three years. Itโ€™s more restricted in its range of databases (you only get MySQL/MariaDB, SQL Server and PostgreSQL) but for many, thatโ€™s enough. Iโ€™ve found it very fast, which is vital for projects such as a 29-million-rows table; a select count (*) SQL command against MariaDB running on my PC takes around two minutes.
