This is fantastic news. MSDN has always been slow and now Microsoft have produced a low bandwidth version designed for travelling developers on slower 3G and HSDPA connections. However, it will probably be my default view from now on. It is much cleaner and easier to read and, naturally, it is much faster to load which is what I want when I need to look something up. I don’t want to lose the train of my thought while waiting for MSDN to load up.
If you are as excited about this as I am then there is more information here: Launching low bandwidth (loband) Beta for long haul! or you can just jump directly to the low bandwidth version of MSDN.
NOTE: In the top right corner is a link to “Persist low bandwidth view”. If you click that any existing searches will be displayed in the low bandwidth version.
