As you can easily see, MySQL can be made much more user friendly with the use of a graphical client such as MySQL Front. There are other added benefits as well, such as the ability to import data from other sources. Most graphical clients, MySQL Front included, also include a user manager. This means that if you have the proper permissions, you can edit MySQL user accounts and refresh the user tables through a simple graphical interface.
Remember that when you create accounts that are allowed access to MySQL remotely, you are also introducing a possible security risk, so you should setup an appropriate MySQL security policy as well.
