In a similar way to adding (loband) before the .aspx part of the url, putting (lightweight) before the .aspx part of the url will use the new lightweight view of MSDN, meaning a much neater and streamlined version.
In addition, Scott has previously posted about the other modes of MSDN:
|-||The normal MSDN view.||Example|
|(loband)||A minimal view, focussed on speed.||Example|
|(lightweight)||A faster lightweight view, including quick links to switch between languages and .Net framework versions.||Example|
|(pda)||Aimed at PDAs and phones. Turns off the tree and allows a 100% width.||Example|
|(robot)||Optimised for search engines.||Example|
|(printer)||A printable version.||Example|
|(ide)||Used when viewing inside the IDE. Adds send and give feedback links.||Example|
Note that the dev10ide view Scott mentions seems to have been removed, and that the lightweight view is currently in beta, so may be liable to change.
