What you can do with HeidiSQL

Final Thoughts

HeidiSQL is a great piece of software that allows us to work with PostgreSQL, MySQL, and Microsoft SQL Server. And it’s available for FREE. You can spend few hundreds of dollars to get all these three if you purchase the commercial software. But with HeidiSQL, you don’t have to pay anything.

Well, I cannot say that this software is perfect. It takes me a few hours of trying to get myself used to it. And it actually needs some works on some areas. See if HeidiSQL 9.5 suit your needs by download and install this software. Share your thoughts here on this blog.
