Code Navigation for JavaScript inside Visual Studio

Someone already submitted refactoring for JavaScript, but I would like to also see complete JavaScript Code Navigation as well. Anyone who has worked with several/large JS files in VS would kill for rightclick->Go To Definition.

    Hello!

    In the Visual Studio 2013 Preview release we’ve introduced the navigation bar to the JavaScript editor. You can use it to navigate between the major elements in your source as well as the code outline of the file. Please try it out and let us know what you think!

    If there’s other navigation tooling you’d like to see – please post a new idea to the site.

        Yes, Javascript Parser VS2010 extension is great. But it has flag bug when there are multiple functions with the same name in different namespace within the same file. I'd also like to see C# Parser too. It would be nice to see this tool be able to show the tree structure for both JavaScript and C# so the tool isn't blank once I look at C# code.

        Javascript Parser Navigation in Solution Explorer. The Javascript Parser VS2010 extension is awesome! I was able to easily dig into tons of OTHER people's cryptic Javascript code. The code as humanly minified to reduce page size. This capability needs to be integrated into Solution Explorer just like Solution Navigator Power Tools extension. The productivity will be amazing! Also, the ability to Mark (star/color/flag) a method is really great too!
