No need to setup an account. Just click the link which say's "No thanks, just start my download" - just tried it and it works.

A great tool so far :-) But now, v6.3.3 crashes after update from 6.2.5 (OS X 10.8.5).

Seems sluggish under 10.9 Mavericks. Also I see that 6.0.8 is available at dev's web page - but requires Oracle account to login/access/download.

There's actually a small link on the same page labeled "No thanks, just start my download." Clicking this will take you directly to the download link without signing in to Oracle.

I would love this app if it didn’t crash 90%+ of the time I use it. I don’t know what oracle is trying to pull: Are they trying to make it suck so everyone moves to their platform? If so they are doing bang up job. But some of us hobbyists can’t afford Navicat to avoid the crappiness that in MySQL Workbench. I don’t know how someone could report this being stable. Just looking at the bug fix release notes tell you this is Beta level software at best. I just wasted about 30 minutes trying to setup a new connection that works in the command line just fine. MySQL itself is great, and the command line is do-able for me, but when designing complex Schema a Graphic view saves a lot of time, which is why I use it. However is is so flakey, I have to hit cmd-s while putting together schema and testing so often that I feel like I’m on OS 7.0! I usually don’t use such strong language but Workbench pisses me off, it’s a love-hate relationship where Workbench is the psycho-SO. One minute it's working great than the next you lose an hour of productivity.

I've had zero crashes with it. My only gripe is that it hijacks the text input control keys ctrl-a, ctrl-e, ctrl-h, ctrl-f, ctrl-b, etc.

Well, I am up to v5.2.37, and it is more stable now. However it still has problems saving connections which is very frustrating. BTW, v5.2.38 is out now yet MacUpdate still has 5.2.34? Erm… a small blip on an otherwise great site, heh.

Using Navicat 9 normally. That works but it costly as well. At home I prefer MySQL workbench and I have to say that the GUI is a lot nicer. Stable and efficient. However my demands at home are not that high...

No. The PPC platform is no longer officially supported by MySQL and all development for the platform has stopped.
