The web console should really only be used as a last resort. It's there to give you quick access in case of emergency or if you somehow locked yourself out.

If you need to do real work like dropping into a mysql console, I'd strongly suggest accessing the droplet over SSH. On MAC or Linux, you can just use SSH directly from your terminal. On Windows you can use PUTTY:

Where is the answers ??????? A customer is using your product, asking you a straight question, and you are answer him on a totally different matter. Wtf !!!!!!! What's going on with you guys. In my case I am stuck with symbole taping on using the console-european keyboard-, it is a fucking nightmare, because your support service disconnect my droplet, because of presence of hacks on it, 2 days after I told you by ticket, and know I am trying to backup and symbole are a nightmare to tape on your console...... What's wrong with you, I am a pro and using droplets from years, you really have to improve this part guys. Otherwise you gonna have some legacy trouble !!!!!
