After constantly digging around for API Assembly documentation on MSDN, I decided MS needs something better.

Let’s assume I don’t have 2GB of VS.NET installed, or maybe I’m not even on a Windows machine [Mono]. I want to read the API docs for System.Net.Sockets.TcpClient. Currently, I can go to Google and find it. Sometimes I can even do and MSDN search and find it. But the MSDN library navigation blows in non IE browsers. Reloading whole frames sets when I just wans to select another node, etc.

So, here’s my wish: Dear MSDN website crew, please create a jump point on the website that will toss people right where they need to go.

For example, forwards me to

For that matter, have someone make an IE toolbar addin to do it and also make a Mozilla/Firefox search plugin for it. That would make my day.

Update: It looks like there is already a Mozilla/Firefox plugin. Bravo. That 1/3 of the way there.
