Managing multiple online identities using different browsers

When you’re online at Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr, the sites normally will allow you to “remember” your signin. This is very convenient as you do not have to reenter your username and password for the next visits. It is not so convenient if you have to manage multiple identities as you have to keep signing in and out with separate accounts.

It is not uncommon to have separate identities for online accounts, some people like to separate their personal account from their work accounts. For example you might be using your company’s email identity for promoting social media marketing for the company. And you like this to be separated from your personal social activities at Twitter and Facebook.

To avoid the hassle of having to sign on and sign out, one quick and dirty solution is to make use of different browser for each identity. For example you can delicate Safari for the accounts you use for the social media marketing works you are doing for Company X, and use Chrome for your personal activities at Facebook and Twitter. Using separate browser will also make it easier to identify the accounts you’re using, to reduce the chances of posting your personal tweets into your company’s Twitter account.

Google Released The First Stable Version of Chrome for Mac & Linux

Google today released stable version of its Mac & Linux version of Chrome, making them on par with its Windows release. The release also comes with new feature: syncing of browser setting and preferences on top of bookmarks; extension in incognito mode; html5 support such as Geolocation APIs, App Cache, web socket, file drag-and-drop. The bookmark manager is also having a facelift.

Today, I’m happy to announce that Google Chrome for Mac is being promoted out of beta to our stable channel. We believe that it provides not only the stability, performance and polish that every Mac user expects, but also a seamless native Mac application experience that Mac users will feel instantly at home with.

Flash is not included by default in this release but Google “we’re excited to enable this feature with the full release of Flash Player (version 10.1) soon”.

6 Things About Google Chrome 5 Beta

Google launched its latest [Chrome 5 Beta via a blog post yesterday](http://chrome.blogspot.com/2010/05/pedal-to-chrome-metal-our-fastest-beta.html). The new browser is touted to have 30% speed improvement for its V8 JavaScript engine. Here are the six things about the new Google Chrome 5 beta:

1. Speed improvement. The Google developed V8 JavaScript engine has 30% and 35% improvement on V8 and SunSpider benchmarks respectively. Google has been “tuning, testing, and polishing the V8 engine to give Chrome a hefty boost in speed.”

2. On top of bookmarks sync to Google Docs, you can now sync your browser preferences including themes, homepage and startup settings.

3. You now use and install Chrome extensions in incognito mode (private browsing).

4. New HTML5 features: geolocation APIs, App Cache, web sockets and file drag-and-drop.

5. Integration with Adobe Flash Player plug-in, including auto updates for Flash Player with Chrome’s build in auto-update mechanism.

6. As with a number of Google products, Google Chrome seems to be always released with a beta label. And the version number is increasing at a comparatively fast rate compared with the other browser. The version is now more than Firefox’s 3.x and Safari’s 4.x, and we will not be surprised if Google Chrome 9 is released before Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9.0.
