    Do you have multiple Gmail personalities?

    Perhaps you have both a personal and business email address hosted by Google?

    Try this script : Google Account Multi-Login for Greasemonkey

    It allows you to quickly change between your Gmail accounts.

    After installing you will have a new dropdown box in the top right of your Gmail account :

    If you don't have it already you need GreaseMonkey before you can install userscript addons.

    POP3 is a good idea but there's still the issue of logging in every so often to keep the account active. I'm not sure if POP3 counts as a login :confused:? I mostly just have a couple browsers running for switching between multiple gmail accounts.

    Yeah, but I'm getting tired of having primary Firefox, secondary logins Chrome, and other peoples stuff in IE.

    It would be really cool if web browsers had a separation of cookies capability.

    Multiple tab bars where each line of tabs had it's of set of cookies. :yay:

    Hey Google has integrated multiple account login. I tried it the other day and wanted to mention it but forgot.

    Google Multiple Sign-in, Now Available

    It's super easy to switch in between I've been using it ever since to check 3 of my Gmail/Reader accounts.
