I need permission to develop sites, which I have. I need a way to be an unsigned-in AD user to test that type of user, which I have by signing out (not ideal). I need a way to just be me without designer permissions so I can test how a regular signed-in AD user works. I need a way to be an anonymous user to test public access, which I can only get at work by jumping to one of my home PCs then browsing to SharePoint.
Testing what is developed is essential and needs to be done by the person who is developing it.
