My wife and I both have Gmail accounts, and we use the same computer. She's getting a little tired of having to re-login everytime I switch back to my account. Does anyone know a way that we can both access our Gmail easily several times a day without having to re-enter our logins and passwords?

We have three business Gmail accounts and we must go through the login on two of them.

The main one has auto notify set up and then all we have to do is right click the icon and click "view inbox". Very cool feature.

Okay, that gave me an idea. I'm running the Gmail notifier for my wife, which sits on your Windows toolbar, and then a different Gmail extension for Firefox. It seems to work.

Alternatives include:

Different browsers for each.
Different browser profiles.
Different OS profiles! (Which I'd lean towards)

We're using different computers now. That solved the problem.
