    I need to maintain multiple Gmail accounts for various purposes. The problem is that it needs a lot of clicks when switching accounts:
    - Click on profile icon, Signout, Signin, Add Account (or click if it was added previously)

    Repeat for another account.

    So this is very troublesome. I've tried some add-ons for Chrome but its still not easy. One add on I tried was "Quick login":

    This add-on also has multiple steps although fewer:
    - Click button, click account, click the account again in the Google internet (I am redirected to another Gmail account).

    I want the last step from this process gone which is "click the account again"

    I want to be able to check multiple accounts at the same time very easily. Some kind of one-click Cookie swap? I would click on a button and click the account and it logs me in automatically and takes me to the Gmail homepage.

    Sometimes I use Firefox too so it would be nice if there's an add on for FF too.

    If I can find a nice system I could stop using Yahoo mail which I hate. The only reason I was using it is that I can use one gmail account and one Yahoo account at the same time.

    How many Gmail accounts?

    I use different web browsers when I need to be in 2-3 accounts at the same time.
