    This looks great.  But the problem is that it doesn't quite give you what the Web Essentials extension did before it.  The CSS page inspector looks great, but changes aren't reflected automatically - you need to refresh.  This is fine for most sites, but for Singla Page Applications, when on a dialog where the page's state isn't reflected in the URL it's a pain.  You would need to fire up the dialog again.  Why not support dynamic CSS changes?

    Other than that - the new features look great.

    @joeyw I'm guessing that what you're describing is due to the tooling being in a beta state

    Microsoft is one of the best editors out there and I really like what you guys did there.

    What would be also awesome is giving advanced FTP support like the on PhpStorm 3.3

    Thanks a lot.

    Let me refer to an article @ALA: http://www.alistapart.com/articles/every-time-you-call-a-proprietary-feature-css3-a-kitten-dies/.
    Long story short, you should remove -moz and -webkit properties from your snippets, otherwise you are helping criminals. Apparently you MS guys always had problems understanding web standards and what they're for;) but you did lots of catching up recently. Don't screw it now.

    There will be a way for you to turn all that off and go strictly W3C standards in the CSS and JS editor.

    Good work. I'm excited to start working on VS11. Can you please focus on reporting. I'm always using Crystal Report to build reports, its very usefull, will it be possible to do such things with an integrated tool.

    Very nice , particularly the browser based CSS intellisense.
    I have not fully used all the existing features of VS2010. I am in magnification of CSS and scripts using 4.0. But you have gone so long ahead. That is what I like MS technologies.

    Hi regarding the question posed in the video: Page Inspector default window behavior, I think my vote would go towards the default being a docked appearance.  Then as along as there is an easy way to undock it and have it behave like a browser window (which will typically be most helpful for devs who have a dual monitor setup I would guess) and then redock it, I think you would have a very nice story with that.

    The JavaScript to to definition thing is nice.

    The little color palette inside the CSS editor is neat.

    The ASP.NET team really ought to shelve web forms. The web is not the desktop. Modeling it as such only leads to leaky abstractions.

    For the host: I tried to keep track of the mmm-hmms, but I lost count. Not to be mean, but you need to work on your public speaking skills if your are going to be hosting a web TV show. It was actually hard to hear what the guest was saying because you were mmm-hmming or talking over them. Go to a Toastmasters or something it'll help you personally and professionally.

    The following XML doesn't give extended Intellisense (it says there's an error in the XML). Any ideas?
    function Divide(a, b) {
    ///<signature>
    /// <summary>Divide 2 numbers</summary>
    /// <parameter name="a" type="Number">Dividend</param>
    /// <parameter name="b" type="Number">Divisor</param>
    /// </signature>
    alert("Result: " + (a / b));
    }

    Thanks...)
