If you have multiple GMail accounts (for regular GMail or Google Apps), you might have experienced signing in and out or using different browsers to check your accounts. Google’s multiple sign-in solves this problem as it lets users login and use 10 Google accounts, including their products/services, open simultaneously in a single browser.
Here’s how you enable Multiple sign-in:
1. Click your name/email address on the top right corner of your screen. Click “Account settings”.
2. Under the Personal Settings area, you’ll see that your Multiple sign-in status is off. Click “Edit”.
3. Click “On” and check all the checkboxes under the “On” option. Click “Save”.
4. Sign out for the changes to take effect then sign back in.
To sign in to your other Google account:
1. Click your name/email address on the top right corner of your screen. Click the “Switch account” link.
2. Click the “Sign in to another account” link to sign in to your other Google account which you’ll be adding.
3. After signing in to the other account, it will be added on the list of Google accounts that you’ll be switching to.
Here are the products that support the multiple sign-in feature:
Alerts, Calendar, Code, Docs (Google Apps accounts only), Finance, Gmail, Google+, Google Moderator, Groups, iGoogle, Maps, News, Profiles, Reader, Sites, Voice, Web Search.

WiseStamp is a browser extension that lets users customize their email signatures with their social profiles enabling them to add their latest tweets, blog posts, music, an eBay item or anything they want to advertise. I use it to promote my site, tweets, and my LinkedIn profile. Users may also add custom-made images to make their signatures attention-catching.
Before, it was just an extension (Firefox for me) that works on the browser-side. Now on GMail, including Google Apps domains, WiseStamp is integrated into the email interface. You’ll see a WiseStamp link near your username on the upper right hand side of your page. And when you click it, a window will pop-up to let you customize your WiseStamp signature.
WiseStamp Integrated in GMail
After customizing your signature, try composing an email message. You’ll see your new and shiny WiseStamp signature. If you see your old signature appended to it, configure your GMail settings by removing your old signature.
