Um, why not just install an email client and check all your email at once (I believe there are numerous, free email apps out there, or Outlook if you're stupiddesperate)? Google is one of the few email providers that allows IMAP. Also, doesn't Google let you check a different email address through GMail? Couldn't you have set your primary account to also check your secondary account (no, I'm not talking about forwarding)? I mean, I know I can tell Yahoo to check my Gmail (but only with POP, which sucks).

Here's another trick. Use a browser with Private Tabs (Porn Mode). Since the tabs don't interact with each other, you could log in on separate tabs, links still work, and better yet, when you close your browser, it clears the memory and doesn't leave you logged-in (also wipes tracking cookies and other crap).

Seems to me, the need to login multiple times is simply a work around to other, better tools that already existed.

I am glad that they are doing this... now if they could allow users to use different email addresses with youtube and google payments than i would be ecstatic.

There are people who use public computers, or those who do not have admin rights on the PC's they use.

I've been doing this with Gmail for some time now. I can even browse all my email in the same tab. I've set it up so that different inboxes are sectioned off into different sections on the screen.

This sounds like it would be more useful to those who use different Google services beyond Gmail. Good stuff either way.

I have a couple of google accounts and managing the logins is a huge pain for me. I really hope this helps.
