Sign into Multiple Google Accounts from the Same Browser

Great news for all Google accounts users! Most of us use multiple Google accounts for various purposes. It was very annoying of signing out of one Google account to sign into another. Recently, Google has fixed this issue. Now, you can sign into multiple Google accounts from the same browser.
This new feature works with Google Calendar, Google Reader, Google Sites, Google Code and Gmail. It lets you open multiple Google accounts in multiple tabs simultaneously and perform your required activities.
This new feature is turned off by default. You need to activate it to enjoy the facility. Sign into any of your Google account. Go to the “Personal Settings” area.

Enable the “Multiple sign-in” option. Check all the boxes for confirmation.  Save changes to finish your job.

You will find a drop-down menu next to your email address at the right-top corner. Use this menu to switch to another account. After enabling this feature, the first account you sign in to, will be your default account.

This new feature has few limitations too. You will not be able to use offline Gmail and offline Google Calendar once you activate it. It is not available on mobile devices yet.
