ReSharper 4.0 Initial thoughts

I just installed ReSharper 4.0 for the first time, & got a quick overview of a few of the features. After using it for about a week, here are my initial thoughts, and some of the features I find myself using a lot:

The configurable silent code clean up feature works really well and is a big time saver. The warnings and alerts are good for making simple errors/redundancies/unused elements jump out.

The find file and find type (ctrl+t, ctrl+shift+t) make it easier to navigate and open files, especially in a very large sln with many projects.

Extracting interfaces from existing classes is an improvement over VS - it actually makes the interface public and implements it in the class.

Finding alt+enter to add references/using directives to be a big time saver.
