  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Do you know if anybody has ever created a plug-in to access Stack Overflow from Visual Studio?

I'd like to be able to search, answer, and vote for Q&As from within the IDE.

Why in the world would you want to do this? All that creating a Stack Overflow plug-in for Visual Studio would do is encourage people to ask questions before debugging their code or reading the applicable documentation. And, on the other site, it would encourage them to simply copy and paste code from answers into their projects, rather than thinking through and trying to understand what it does. Overall, a terrible idea. – Cody Gray May 2 '11 at 7:07

VSCommands has a toolbar and notifications. I have VSC but I don't use the toolbar, so I'm not sure exactly what it does.
