Login as different user in SP 2013

Issue:
How to login to SharePoint 2013 portal as different user without closing the browser tab.

Description:
There was an option available to login as different user in SharePoint 2010 and that was pretty useful for development and testing purposes.
But in SharePoint 2013, there is no such visible option provided. Here is a way by which you can directly sign-in as a different user.

Solution:

Just modify the URL in your address bar in this format and load the page:
{BaseSiteURL}/_layouts/closeConnection.aspx?loginasanotheruser=true
Example:
https://bipul.in/_layouts/closeConnection.aspx?loginasanotheruser=true
