Description of the new functionalityThe new Browse without Build functionality can be helpful when you are modifying .aspx pages that use the inline code model instead of the code-behind code model.
When the designer for an .aspx page has focus, or when an .aspx page is selected in Solution Explorer and Solution Explorer has focus, the browser windows in the IDE are opened so that you can view the .aspx page without performing a project build or a solution build. Because the .aspx page uses inline code, Microsoft ASP.NET dynamically recompiles the page if the page has been saved. This behavior causes any changes to appear.
Note By default, the Visual Studio .NET 2003 IDE uses the code-behind model. If you use the new Browse without Build functionality for a page that uses the code-behind model, you may receive an error message. If this problem occurs, verify that your project builds successfully.
Microsoft does not recommend that you use the new Browse without Build functionality for pages that use the code-behind model.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
