HeidiSQL 5.1 – good has got better

have been using HeidiSQL since more than three and half years now and I am really happy with it. I must say that we work with heavy database consisting of more than 400 tables and database size exceeding few GBs but HeidiSQL has never let us down. I have tried loading my development database with phpMyAdmin and SQL Buddy both but they just failed to load such a large database with few hundreds of tables..! But with HeidiSQL I never had any problem except I got some crashing sometime in newer 5.x version but I am sure all such things will be fixed in coming builds. I am not telling that there are no other good tools are available in the market but HeidiSQL is in premium open-source tool at free of cost. I remember I had written a post on HeidiSQL 4.x more than a year ago and today we are up with HeidiSQL 5.1.
