VS.Net WebForms Designer

Just curious as to some opinions of the WebForms designer - It is as clunky as older versions of VS/InterDev, or is it a useful tool for form design in web projects.

Obviously, writing the code gives a better understanding of what the application is doing, but I was curious whether or not anyone's using the designer.

Sometimes I use it when I don't feel like typing out all the tags for a DataGrid, or making sure I have a reference to the tag in my codebehind file.

But then I look back at my mangled code and I'm sorry I hit that design button.

Its quite good for laying out pages quickly but I wouldn't view the page in netscape or Mozilla.

The current version does not seem to stream out compatible code. (Weird! ;-)  )

I keep a copy of Dreamweaver MX handy.
