    Without any hesitation: Sequel Pro. I've been using it for years and really happy with it.
    Sequel Pro: I've been using this a bit and so far so good. It supports multiple open connections, but only one SQL editor per connection. You can open a SQL file into the editor but then it doesn't clearly display what file you have open which is annoying. Otherwise it seems solid. MySQL workbench: MySQL workbench (for architecting) and Navicat for MySQL (for storing & scheduling common queries and report generation) are both great with enough differences to warrant mentioning both.
    Way better and very stable product.

    The UI is great and easy to work with. Also worth mentioning is it's very fast.
    It's the best for relational database, native build, lightning fast and very handy query editor

    Pros: Looks great, supports all major Database connectors, has visual schema viewer Cons: pricey Not too sure how this product is different from their DB plugin that is available on Intellij IDEA or other products

    Some recommendations are for MySQL, this is a great tool to run those postgres queries to pull those redshift data that your marketing/finance (insert department) team really really need today :)

    Yeah, this is more or less the same UI as Sequel Pro, but for Postgres.
