Visual Studio 2008 advantages over Visual Web Developer?

What are the advantages of using Visual Studio 2008 over Visual Web Developer?

I know I can create windows programs in Visual Studio, but my reason for using it strictly web development.

I will basically be building many intranet sites pulling information out of a business system.

Are there massive differences in Visual Studio vs Visual web developer that would make me really need the Visual Studio?


Thanks in advance for the help!
