I decided to do a little web maintenance today and was greeted by a pleasant surprise. At first, I thought I’d fouled up something along the way, but quickly realized that phpMyAdmin had received a rather charming overhaul.
Having poked around a bit, I believe it will be a bit more user-friendly. Rather than bombard the user with a frightening number of options (any of which might mean the crashing and burning of her website), whenever possible, the user is now offered a slimmed-down version with an option to view the advanced options.
Even the search page is made more usable by offering clearer options.
It’s going to take some getting used-to, but I rather like this new design.
