This is what MSDN team called “URL aliases”.

Aliases also works for classes. To look for documentation of System.Reflection.Assembly class, I will simply type

This is superb work done by MSDN team!

  1. Lets just hope that the new MSDN works correctly with Firefox. Try browsing in the library with the Firefox browser in the current MSDN site…the left navigation just doesn’t work like IE.
