Navicat has quickly become one of my favourite tools for working with a database. I recently purchased Navicat for SQLite, MySQL, and Microsoft’s SQL Server.
Navicat’s GUI interface is intuitively simple and makes it easy to quickly design and maintain a robust database. Of course, you don’t have to take my word for it as you can download a free 14-day trial of the software and try it out for yourself.
Navicat’s footprint is relatively small and, aside from choosing where to install Navicat on your machine, the installation process requires a few minutes to complete.
Download the trial software from the Navicat website and allow the installer to make changes to your system.
