Following on from my last post on the MDSN Low Bandwidth View, Scott Hanselman recently tweeted about the beta version of MDSN Lightweight View.
In a similar way to adding
(loband) before the
.aspx part of the url, putting
(lightweight) before the
.aspx part of the url will use the new lightweight view of MSDN, meaning a much neater and streamlined version.
In addition, Scott has previously posted about the other modes of MSDN:
|-||The normal MSDN view||Example|
|(loband)||A minimal view, focussed on speed||Example|
|(lightweight)||A faster lightweight view, including quick links to switch between languages and .Net framework versions||Example|
|(pda)||Aimed at PDAs and phones. Turns off the tree and allows a 100% width||Example|
|(robot)||Optimised for search engines||Example|
|(printer)||A printable version||Example|
|(ide)||Used when viewing inside the IDE. Adds send and give feedback links||Example|
Note that the dev10ide view Scott mentions seems to have been removed, and that the lightweight view is currently in beta, so may be liable to change.
