General Question On ASP .NET Site Design In Visual Studio

Okay....took a little while...but I realized that the Visual Studio Web Page Design view is pretty much useless if you are doing any kind of serious design validation. I would have appreciated if they just turned that design window into a preview pane that uses the IE engine if they were just going to screw that up again. My move from there was to deploy the site into the local IIS and refresh open browsers while I update the site live within Visual Studio.  What I want to know is simple. In the opinions of experts on this site....what is the best and most productive workflow that you use for developing ASP .NET sites without spending too much time waiting for preview windows to open and close as you bounce back between the types of browsers you want to support. As a someone who knows coding in C# really well, and is used to some sort of consistancy in workflow, I need some help in this area of web page design and layout. If you know of any good books on how to approach designing a serious layout, please direct me. Most seem to drop a few controls in a bland background and call that a tutorial...pages don't look like that anymore. Any and all help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I put away the Design View long time ago :)  Mostly now I just rely on right-click -> View in Browser and then look at it in the different browsers.  You don't need to waste time uploading to IIS.

I dont have any design books, but I use a lot of websites:
http://sixrevisions.com is on of my favorites, not just examples, but full tutorials
http://sixrevisions.com/web_design/16_sites_web_design_inspiratio/ <-is a great compilation of design ideas, pointers
http://www.smashingmagazine.com is great as well
