Switching between accounts in Chrome

So apparently it's really easy to switch between sets of accounts in Chrome

Think LJ Login but for the entire browser and you can keep windows for both accounts open at the same time.

I've been using two browsers for long-term things, and the incognito window for short-term things but I did always wish for a way to have a separate profile in chrome (where my extensions are) while still remembering my history and open tabs for next time.

I'm switching to this method for juggling my personal and official DW accounts -- and probably when testing and debugging as well

It is amazing, isn't it? I had both Chrome and Firefox, each with different accounts, but switching from one to the other had me trying to use extensions that weren't there, and looking for the menus where they were not. Two Chrome accounts is so much easier, and just a click away :D. And the fact that I can rescue my bookmarks, extensions and custom tweaks by just conecting my google account to a new Chrome browser (in another computer, or like when my computer crashed and burned and died on me) is awesome too \0/.
