WoVS Default Browser Switcher

Displays indent guides in Visual Studio text editor windows.

The guides are displayed at the indent specified in your settings, regardless of whether you use tabs, spaces, or a combination of the two.

There are four styles of guides: thin, thick, dotted and dashed, and the color can be customized. The default is dotted teal, as shown in the image. Each indent level can have a different style and color.

There are five modes for displaying guides in empty lines: none, same as above, same as below, or matching the above or below indents. The image shown has guides matching the indent of the previous line.

New version (19Jun2011): Brand new options dialog, allowing different settings for content types (eg. CSharp, Basic) and customizable lines at different levels.

Source code is available at http://indentguide.codeplex.com

Currently it is a bit of a pain (as in "too many clicks" and sometimes non-visible options) to change the browser used by VS when you're developing and testing your website. We took action and in a few days developed the "Default Browser Switcher" extension that offers: A new toolbar (in order to make it visible you have to go View -> Toolbars -> Default Browser Switcher):

Default Browser Switcher toolbar

which you can use to easily change with a single click the default browser used by VS. And we went a bit further and added a new "View in Browser" command which sits next to the built-in one:

Default Browser Switcher commands

If you just want to quickly try a web page with a given browser you can use this new command without having to mess at all with the default browser settings.

As a last bonus we enabled our "View in Browser" command for ASP.NET MVC projects, as the built-in command isn't available for these projects. The bits are free as in beer. You can download them from the Visual Studio Gallery or the Extension Manager within VS. They will expire on Sept. 1st at which time full public beta bits of WoVS will be available and you will need to download them again for compatibility reasons (of course, free as in beer, again).
