`M-n' is bound to `clone-buffer' in `Info-mode-map'.  Use it to get
an Info clone of the current node - buffer `*info*<2>' etc.  Then
navigate from either of the two buffers for the node.  Etc.

IOW, you can have as many Info buffers as you like open at the
same time.  Each has its own history (Back etc.).

Remember that in any mode, and Info mode is no exception, `C-h m'
is your friend.  It tells you, among many other things, that `M-n'
selects "a new cloned Info buffer in another window".

Ask Emacs.
