Database design tool

Hi all! :) Can you suggest me any tool that can help with database design? Something for Mac would be great. I've to build a big database and I'd like to test it as much as possible before to start coding. Thanks :)

Danny,

mySQL Workbench is one of the most popular. There is no "best", though; the only way you'll discover that is to try a few yourself. It's subjective. I will say that the best feature of mySQL Workbench is that it's free...most others (that are good) are not.

Hi Andreas, thanks for your answer! I'm testing it right now, but I wanted to know which one is the best according to all of you :)
