MySQL Query Browser's replacement?

According to < ;,
MySQL Query Browser and all the MySQL GUI Tools Bundle have been
replaced with MySQL Workbench. So I install that and... how is that a
replacement? I can't figure out at all how to create databases in
MySQL Workbench or perform queries. Maybe it's possible but if so
it's a horrible interface. MySQL Query Browser was really quite
intuitive and MySQL Wordbench appears to be backpedaling more than
anything else.

Well, opinions about MySQL Workbench may vary (I like it, and they are
working hard to make it even better in a fast pace), but it sounds as
if you're using the wrong tool.

Managing databases and performing queries are best done in phpMyAdmin.
It's the tool of choice for such work.
Workbench, on the other hand, is wonderful for modeling work. The
graphical interface allows you to "see" your database structure, define
field types, check consistency and import/export the lot.

Personally, I like MySQL Query Browser better than phpMyAdmin. Just
seems lighter weight and faster to me than phpMyAdmin. I also prefer
it to the mysql command line tool. The fact that there's a scroll bar
and that you can edit stuff in the database without having to write an
UPDATE query is just really convenient. I guess phpMyAdmin offers
that functionality, too, but I dunno... you just have to go through
more mouse clicks to use it. Or something. Also, MySQL Query
Browser's easier to install, imho.

SQLyog's kinda nice. You may have to fuss around a bit to find the
community edition.
