Quick Tip: Debugging with Multiple Browsers

You don't have to check your site in just one browser at a time.

When you pick the list of browsers from the dropdown list in the toolbar at the top of Visual Studio, you might have noticed the Browse With choice in the list. If you pick that, you'll get a list of all the known browsers installed on your computer. What's interesting about this list is that if you hold down the Control key, you can select multiple browsers. Now, when you debug your application, it will open in all the browsers you selected.

Two more things: If you make changes to your site's pages, the refresh button to the right of the browser button in the toolbar will cause all the browsers to display your changes; and if you've forgotten which browsers you've selected, hovering your mouse over the refresh button will give you a list of the browsers you picked.
