What you're seeing is caused because your session is locked during page 
processing, so the second page can't load till the first has finished. 
This is because page processing is expected to change things in the 
session, and if it weren't locked like this, things would get corrupted.

One way around it is to make some pages not use a session at all. That's 
not a good idea for a superuser, since the superuser logged-in status is 
stored in the session. :)

Another way is to use a different browser for different requests. (Not 
different browser tabs or windows, but actually a different browser 

It would be possible to modify Interchange such that some pages were 
flagged as making "read-only session usage" so that they wouldn't block 
other pages. Then Interchange would know not to lock when serving those. 
That would take a little work.
