Hi guys,

Are there still existing compatibility issues with other browser other than IE for Visual Studio 2005/2008?

If there are, do we have an alternative or work around?

Yes we do have browser problems for the site made using VS 2005/08.

E.g: Menu control wont render properly in Safari or Crome and even in IE 8.

But good thing is that these can be avoided either by using browser caps or changing Z-index of the control.

Remember, there is always a solution for every problem.

 Aside from rendering, is there any other else?
Like session variable problem, Javascript and others?

Is there a site to visit, where all the issues are compiled and also have solution?

 I dont think so these problems will arise for the site developed using VS 2005/08. because recently i have developed a site using VS 08 in which I have used all these features.

As per my knowledge, there is no site where all the problems are listed with solution.If you come accross, please submit at this post so that it can help all of us.

Apart from some controls like already said all depends on how you write your HTML and CSS i.e follow the XHTML standards property

Once the whole page is ready get the HTML and CSS validated from

if you pass this tests your page will look similar in all browsers

New features in VS 2008 vs VS 2005
Hello friends !! I'm completly new in Visual Studio 2008, Let me know  what are the advantages to use VS 2008 compare with VS 2005. Plz provides some practical apprachs. Thanks @@ Happy Coding..HI@@ That's always a difficult question, as it's mixed between what Visual Studio offers and what .NET 3.x frameworks offer.
