Doesn't get much better than phpMyAdmin. www.phpmyadmin.net.
Another really good alternative* is MySQL Control Center from the people
at MySQL. www.mysql.com


* I say "really good alternative" because it can't edit tables like
phpMyAdmin can. In phpMyAdmin you can insert new columns anywhere in the
table. With MySQL Control Center you have to add a column to the very
end of the table. (At least I can't figure it out otherwise.)

Also, MySQL Control Center is a gui for Windows and is much faster than
phpMyAdmin (web based interface).
