Symptoms

On : 18.4 version, Client Functionality

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
----------------------------
Ability to have similar applets web layouts open in separate tabs for comparison. The workaround here might be to have multiple Web Tools sessions open in different browsers. That adds other issues since Siebel is session based.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
----------------------------------
Web editor should have the ability to open multiple sessions / tabs to allow editing Applets in parallel.

STEPS
-----------------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
Currently, its not possible to open multiple tabs of web tools within the same browser.

BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
The issue has the following business impact:
With the slow performance of Web Tools, it becomes tedious, at best, to open the Web Layout Editor for an Applet, realize a Text Label needs adjusting or the Caption needs altered. Then, the user has to close the editor, go edit the control and then re-open the editor to confirm the layout is correct.

This costs the developer time and effort due to minimal efficiency. The time gained from not requiring an SRF to compile is lost in editing the Web Layouts or trying to alter Web Layouts.
