No, in each individual forum there is the "New Topic" button on the left, just above the list of topics for that forum.
Directly above that button and below the names of the Moderators for that forum is "users browsing this forum".
Most of the time it seems not to include your own ID, but this is a feature I quite like, being able to see which other members are currently browsing that forum.
Ah I see. What is interesting though I just looked through all the forums and for browsers on most it said none. When I got to the round Table debate it said me. So why was I included in the round table debate but not the other forums. HHmmmmm. ?
