Add reference dialog in VS2010

Sometimes a simple improvement can give a lot of benefit. I can’t count the time that I was just waiting for the list of assemblies to pop up after clicking the Add reference… option in Visual Studio.

In Visual Studio 2010 they’ve made two improvements to this:

  1. The Add reference dialog opens up by default on the Project tab
  2. The assemblies are loaded on a background thread, preventing the UI from blocking.

Thank you, Microsoft.
