Browsing in Visual Studio.NET

There is a lot of talk right now about the new tab functionality in IE7, and the fact that tabbed browsing actually is available in IE6 as well by means of a plugin. However, there is another Microsoft tool that can be used for tabbed browsing: Visual Studio.NET 2003. It’s all very simple:

  1. Start up VS.
  2. Press Ctrl+Alt+R (assuming you have default key mappings).
  3. Browse to a site.
  4. Shift-click a link to open it in a new tab.

Voila! It ain’t pretty but it does the trick in four seconds.
