You'd know a lot more if you'd asked this question in a forum devoted to the type of question you're asking. This is the IDE and Version Control forum.


However, the answer depends. If all the "browsers" are just windows in the same browser program, they'll all share the same cookies, and therefore the same session. IE and Firefox are 2 different programs with 2 different cookie stores, so an IE session won't be shared with Firefox.
