Subject RE: Tabbed browsers sharing session - work around.
Date Tue, 05 Oct 2010 14:50:48 GMT
Hi Chris,

In Internet Explorer 5.5,6.0 if you opened up two separate browser instances they would have
two 'un-connected' sessions. As stated by Ronald they would share the session if the 2nd was
opened using ctrl-n but otherwise the sessions would be unique. Cookies may have always worked
as they do now but the browser would store them within each instance. They seem to have changed
to now share the sessions/cookies and this was introduced at the same time as tabbed browsers
IE7+. 

Regards,
Rob
