I have recently started using PostgreSQL with my rails app.

I was looking for a SQL GUI to the PostgreSQL database (for Mac).

Anything better than pgadmin3?

Any which you think is the best? –  Aram Bhusal Sep 5 '12 at 9:30
That's a matter of taste, I prefer pgAdmin. –  Frank Heikens Sep 5 '12 at 11:00

I'm currently developing a Mac client for PostgreSQL named PG Commander. My goal is to make the best designed PostgreSQL client for the Mac -- it's not as full featured as pgAdmin, but it's a lot easier to use.

Not having a Mac I can't really tell if your tool is superb (will ask my colleagues though) - but I am glad to hear about it. Do you have any plans to port it to linux/Windows/VMS/etc.? –  dezso Jun 13 '13 at 20:08
At the moment I have no plans to port it to other platforms. Unfortunately I just don't have the resources to do so. –  Jakob Egger Jun 14 '13 at 7:40

Check out JackDB, it's a database client entirely in your web browser.

There's no software to install locally so you can use it on Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows and it works on all major modern browsers (eg. Chrome, Firefox, IE, Safari, and Opera). It supports connecting to PostgreSQL, as well as MySQL, Oracle, and SQL Server databases.

Full disclosure: I'm the founder of JackDB.
