Chrome to Get Multiple User Profile Support

Google Chrome is about to officially get multi-profile support. According to Downloadsquad, once this feature kicks in, users will be able to run different windows of Chrome with different Google (Gmail) accounts.

Currently, it is possible to enable multiple profile support in Chrome with command line switches. However, once Google officially enables this feature, you will be able to access it from Chrome’s preferences dialogue box (pictured below).


Every individual window, Chrome will clearly display which profile it is associated with. In Windows, this information will be displayed at the top of the browser frame, where as in Mac, this info will be added to the menu bar. Every profile will be color-coded to make identification easier.

There’s no word on when these features will show up in Chromium. However, knowing Google, it probably won’t take too long.
