I use MySQLCC[1] on daily basis, and phpMyAdmin[2] too, neither is 
perfect to my tast, but together they are great. Good thing with MySQLCC 
is that you can access remote DBs with it.

MySQL administrator[3] might come handy at some point.

I also use Apache/PHP on my local machine to connect to remote MySQL. I 
have local MySQL too, but often I want to try a script on 'real' data, 
but not yet upload the script.
