TurboDbAdmin - AJAX based PHPMyAdmin on Steroids?

Call it PHPMyAdmin on steroids, or just an online database administration tool that happens to be AJAX based. TurboDbAdmin is one of the coolest AJAX based FREE application-of-the-year for MySQL database administrators. The good news, for those of you who are still using MySQL 4 or MySQL 5, is that minimum requirements for TurboDbAdmin by Turbo AJAX is MySQL 3 or higher with PHP 4 or higher installed.

Some highlights:
- Data is efficiently retrieved from the server so you don't have to wait. Columns are sortable.
- Real-time editing of table data: edits are automatically saved to your database server.
- Add, delete, backup, and rename databases. MySQL servers supported

For those of you still unfamiliar with , here is a quote from Wikipedia

Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, or Ajax, is a web development technique for creating interactive web applications using a combination of:

* XHTML (or HTML) and CSS for presenting information
* The Document Object Model manipulated through JavaScript to dynamically display and interact with the information presented
* The XMLHttpRequest object to exchange data asynchronously with the web server. (XML is commonly used, although any format will work, including preformatted HTML, plain text, JSON and even EBML)

Like DHTML, LAMP, or SPA, Ajax is not a technology in itself, but a term that refers to the use of a group of technologies together. In fact, derivative/composite technologies based substantially upon Ajax, such as AFLAX, are already appearing.

Some features such as executing MySQL queries on the server are still in development according to the website. A Live demo of TurboDbAdmin for MySQL is available at
