    Good, universal client that has a better autocomplete and more intuitive mass data movement tools than Razor and has a very nice and needed dark mode. Unfortunately, DBeaver does not use tabs well and is not good with intra-script spaces but still a good tool for a wide variety of tasks.

    MySQL Workbench vs RazorSQL opinions
    This alternative is disputed. MySQL Workbench is still a legitimate alternative to RazorSQL, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    MySQL Workbench only supports MySQL databases, it is not general purpose.
