MSDN Lightweight Mode

Long time, no blog. Mostly I update on Twitter now ( – it’s just easier to hurl a 140-character tidbit out than it is to write one of these posts. And I’m nothing if not lazy. But a reader posted a comment over here about MSDN Lightweight Mode. I checked it out, and it’s pretty cool, so I thought I would share it here on the blog, since I know not everyone watches my Twitter feed.

Anyway, have a look at (for example) and see what you think. I like it. I particularly like the fact that I can view just C# code (or just VB, or just whatever), as the noise generated by seeing all the languages is probably my only complaint with the loband view, which I still love and use as my primary interface to the MSDN website. 

I have no idea if this is an official thing, or an alpha that will disappear tomorrow, or what. Although I’m still doing work for MSDN, I only heard about this via the comment that Robert dropped on my blog. So hopefully I won’t get in trouble for sharing it, since I found out about it in public. :)

Check it out and see what you think.
