Google Chrome To Receive Multiple Profiles FeatureGood news, the future Google Chrome release will receive a feature that some people wanted for ages: multi-profiles.

According to the Revision 91573 post at chromium.org (which was spotted by one of our readers, Shane Bundy), when creating a new profile, not only will the user be able to name it (obviously) but also assign a different icon for every single one of them.

If you are curious enough to try this feature now, it already available in the latest version of Chromium.

    I really don’t have need for this, can someone tell me the real consumer usage of this ? There might be some usage for this which I’m yet to see the requirement.

      Probably just in preparation for Chrome OS.
      Guess this is the first thing I’ve found which is quite useless IRL (in the browser space, unless you like that sort of thing).

        I think, you are correct. This makes sense for Chrome OS.

        In preparation for Chrome OS? It’s already out. I don’t understand!

          Google still maintains its own OS (thank goodness) and for as long as they continue that they will continue to improve it. They could add this for ChromeOS v2 (or whatever).

      Multiple users in the same operating system account. That’s the usage.

      So you basically want Chrome to be Opera?

    Chrome is a minimalistic browser and it’s quite big (over 100MB), yet noobs love it for being just a fast browser. I don’t think Google will add these basic functions just because they think a code-bloated (although not really bloated) browser doesn’t need them and the fact those noobs are probably stupid.
    Not all Chrome users are stupid but some are. I’ve noticed a lot of them at school who don’t even know the difference between Chrome and IE.
