Hex Visualizer Extension for Visual Studio 2015

Sometimes you just need to see the Hex... Mladen Mihajlovic thought the same, took a hex editor control and mashed it up into a Visual Studio Extension and here you go!
Hex viewer visualizer provides a visualizer for byte arrays so as to display them in a mini hex visualizer. Very useful for debugging network packets and binary files.
I think in Vs2015 that you should be able to get this on a byte array, but if not (as in previous VS versions) you can do the following...
When on a breakpoint, in your watch window create a new row with "new WeakReference(p)" where p is your byte variable.
This will then allow you to visualize the Weak Reference.

Uses the Be.Hex control from Be.HexEditor (.NET C# hex edit control)
