Hi,

I just realized week or two ago, as Google Chrome (I use stable amd64) automaticli sign-me-in after login into gmail account.
I use only Google Chrome to check gmail mails and few business account, and other browser to other tasks. For the first time I tought I am just logged-in into my gmail account, but Today I tested it more, and found I could stay loged into Google Chrome into one account and be logged-in into another gmail account.

I thought last time, when after login gmail was asking me for password again (just second after login) it was some kind of software issue, but looks like the second time Google Chrome wish me to be logged-in.

Any idea how to disable those possibility to login into Google Chrome (and sync) in the time I login into gmail account? Also looks like stable Plasma is also stalikng me for access to integraion with Chrome (I got such icon in the KDE panel), can I switch this off.

Regarding Chrome, this is an anti-feature added in recent versions of Chrome. Formally, it is called "Identity consistency between browser and cookie jar". I read about it when it first came out, and cannot find that link now. However, ghacks has some remarks on it.

Optional feature is optional, not sure what you try to imply there. I'm curious, why do you have Chrome installed?
