Toad has a lot of features that are very useful, fast, and well developed. It is a very easy and helpful tool for me and my work. It is the main program that I use, every day.

I would like to see an improvement in the performance because opening the browser and the editor should be faster.

The current version of Toad is stable. However, the previous version was not stable.

I have used other tools, but Toad is the best of them.

The initial setup of this solution is easy. Deployment takes approximately one hour.
