  • WP Tuner – Unfortunately, the performance profiling was not maintained and was broken with WP3.
  • MoWeS – It had become too inconvenient to deal with component upgrades and stability concerns (Apache started to crash all the time)
  • NetBeans – switched to PhpStorm
  • eAccelerator – modern version don’t provide object cache, somewhat unstable (occasional crashes)
  • webgrind – PhpStorm can now interpret and show profiler logs, so there’s no need for it.

  • MySQL Query Browser – HeidiSQL has taken its place.

For Mac (OSX)
