Well, that's you. I prefer tools with a text UI. In fact I use SQL*PLus most of the time. :-)

The data volume in the DB is irrelevant (unless you plan to draw terabyte reports, which I doubt any client tool will handle gracefully).

Not 100% what you want but at least has support for table and column name as well as keyword completion, which allows reasonable fast creation of queries. No graphical output but support for several databases among them oracle (with plan and other statistics display) and it's cross platform.

Kind regards
