While working on Windows or Linux, I can easily open new instances (windows) of the Chrome browser simply by clicking on the user's icon in the browser's chrome. This means that I have browser instances completely separate in each window, with different password stores, different bookmarks, … And, most importantly, the all The instance carries a single Google ID: all tabs in that instance are connected to the same Google account.
On the contrary, in Chrome OS I have two options, both unsatisfactory for my workflow:
Log out and sign in using a different Google account. This means that all my applications are closed, and the change is very slow and inconvenient.
In any Google web application (for example, gmail), select the user icon and click "Add account". This will allow the current instance of Google Chrome to know about the other account, but this will not allow me to access the password store or bookmarks of the other account. Basically, the browser is still linked to the main Google account, with the option to connect the selected tabs to other accounts.
Is there any way to emulate the very useful functionality of Google Chrome for Windows / Linux on Chrome OS?
For example, it is possible to create a new window in Incognito mode, by right-clicking on the Chrome icon in the taskbar. It would be great if this concept could be extended to create a new window connected to a different Google user.
