- dbdesigner4 (fabforce)
- toad
- microolap
- eclipse database tools
- sql manager (http://sqlmanager.net/en/products#mysql)

i currently use the last one for pgsql...it allows me to debug stored 
procedures. I use that tool cause it has many killer apps in the suite. 
Downside is that it costs $$$. Most good ER tools will cost money. That 
is the primary con about them. Eclipse database tools are not as robust 
but are sufficient in what they do.
