Look & Feel
Compared too… Visual Studio
It looks very similar to the Visual Studio implementation. Though I can imagine that the codebases are shared between the both.
So depending on your need… You may want to use one or the other.
- Project Deco got an upgrade and went to “preview”.
- You are able to manipulate your storage accounts a bit more in-depth without delving into code.
One thought on “Azure : Storage Explorer Preview”
At the time of posting, I’m experiencing some issues with ADFS logins for organizational accounts. Though my subscriptions linked to my LiveID worked like a charm!
