Google Chrome 17 Alpha (Dev) Changelog
After releasing the final version of Google Chrome 15 a couple of weeks ago, the search giant has since then pushed Google Chrome 16 into a Beta channel, which includes a really smart feature.
Google Chrome 16 Beta Changelog
As with every software release, you can expect various bug and security related fixes. However, the one feature that has been added is a support for multiple profiles on a same computer.
The latest Google Chrome beta supports multiple sign ins, allowing users to have their own apps, bookmarks, and settings in the browser. This is great for people who do not want to create multiple OS profiles, or for people with separate accounts for business and personal use.
Once you’ve installed the Chrome beta, you can set up multiple profiles in the options menu, under Personal Suff, by clicking “Add New User.” This automatically generates a nickname and an avatar for the user, both of which can be modified. Users can also sign into their Google accounts from the options menu to fetch Chrome settings from the cloud.
