Logging in to multiple forum windows on same pc

I just want to confirm something I noticed...

I am in the process of setting up my forums. To better learn the system I am using multiple windows logged into the forums. In the first window, I am logged in as "admin". In the second window I am logged in on a second account I made, Ryan (me). The idea is I wanted to look side-by-side at the differences between a normal user account and the administrator account.

I realized that when I log into the 2nd window as Ryan, my first window switches from being logged in as admin to Ryan, and vice-versa. Is this by design? If so, is there a work around for testing purposes? Or do I need to log into a second pc?


That's the normal behaviour of the browser;)
Some browsers allow you to open a second window, where you'll get an other session, or you could use an other browser;) (that's how i'm testing)

You can use a different browser or try using private/incognito browsing for the second window on the same browser.
