DBeaver - Universal Database Manager and SQL Client. DBeaver is free and open source (GPL) universal database tool for developers and database administrators.
Usability is the main goal of this project, program UI is carefully designed and implemented.
It is based on open source framework and allows writing of various extensions (plugins).
It supports any database having a JDBC driver.
It may handle any external data source which may or may not have a JDBC driver.
There is a set of plugins for certain databases (MySQL, DB2, PostgreSQL, Oracle, MongoDB, Cassandra and Redis in version 3.x) and different database management utilities (ER diagrams, data migration, metadata editors, etc).

The best database management for Linux so far, running on Debian 9 Stretch.
This is by far the best DB UI platform I have ever used, and it works for pretty much any db flavor you can throw at it. Hell, just having the ability to click through on foreign keys sets it into a field of its own. Amazing how I can't find any other good ones with that basic obvious feature.
It is bursting with features and little ease-of-use shortcuts all over the place. The interface is solid and clean, and even easy to navigate without a mouse. The software seems to be very stable and bug free. The only option it's missing that I could think of is the ability to directly look up all tables linking to a foreign key (though you can technically do that via the full db search feature).
I wish the author accepted donations.

This is salvation after web-pgAdmin 4 release
This is probably the best you'll find in a free, cross-platform, and open source option. It's surprisingly complete, with many features for any serious developer.
just saved my life om ubuntu for mssql on azure
The only true competitor to DBeaver is bloated, buggy MySQL Workbench, and it's no contest.
DBeaver is exceedingly fast. It loads quickly and responds instantly, never freezing the UI for nebulous or dubious reasons.
DBeaver is exceedingly stable. I haven't had a single freeze, crash, hiccup, or glitch of any kind.
DBeaver has legion more features.
DBeaver is even significantly prettier than the alternatives.
If there are any disadvantages, it's the lack of solid documentation. Than again, I haven't found I need any.
Works with a ton of different databases. It seems to be pretty lenient on parsing SQL. For example, it can be tough to create MySQL stored procedures in MySQL workbench because it is strict about the semi-colon delimiter, but there is no trouble here.
Very easy to use. Seems faster also. Wish I had found it earlier. All the time I have been using unfriendly Sql Server Management Studio.
Simple and elegant tool. I use it to talk to Redshift.
Had no crashes. Seems to have all the needed functionality.
I am using for simple cms application for learning purpose.
As Java is one of the most exploited programs, I did not want to install an older version of it just to maybe replace Postico.
According to http://dbeaver.jkiss.org/download/ :
Tested and verified for MS Windows XP/7/8/10, Linux and Mac OS X.
DBeaver requires Java 1.8 or higher. Windows installers include JRE 1.8.
If you are NOT on Windows you have to setup Java.
If you are on Mac OS X then you will need JDK 1.8+.
