Multiple Accounts in Multiple Firefox Tabs

Isn't it bad that we can't open two Gmail accounts simultaneously in two Firefox tabs?

I always felt it missing. I use one Gmail account for Orkut and another one for my Blog (ATOzTOA). One method is to use IE Tab. Use IE Tab for one account and normal Firefox for the other.

What I do is...
- Start Orkut, it will go to the page asking to login, leave it there.
- Start Blogger, login with one account.
- Go back to Orkut and login using the Orkut id.
* It normally works. But if I login to Orkut first, then I doesn't :)

What if we can open two Gmails in adjacent tabs?

But, we can !!!

[ CAUTION: None of the methods works if Tab Mix Plus is managing your tabs ]

1. CookieSwap

CookieSwap enables you to easily swap all your cookies so that you can be logged in to multiple web e-mail accounts (like Gmail and Yahoo! mail) at the same time and quickly switch between them.

CookieSwap 0.5.1 for all Versions

2. CookiePie

CookiePie is a Firefox extension that enables you to maintain different cookies storage in different tabs and windows. It is more easy to use (better interface).

CookiePie 1.0.2

I tried both, didn't work. I suspect Tab Mix Plus, but is not sure. Someone please confirm this.

I'm Susan, of the TechnoSnack's team and I wish to inform you that we are opening a new blog aggregator about Computers & Internet news.
We put it on-line some hours ago and the link is:

The main objective of this project is creation of a "virtual dashboard" of posts coming from many specialized blog and information about Computers & Internet world, with news about Linux, Windows, Mac, Open sources, Security, Graphics, Symbian and more on...

The key feature is that news come directly from blogosphere. We wish to show a preview of posts, with a link "Read more..." to signed blogs. If users are interested in news, they are redirected to your blog and can read entire post directly from your blog!

So, the different signed blogs can increase their visibility and reach more visitors, all over the world!

We think that in a little of time it can send more visitors to re gistered blogs, contributing to diffusion of know-how about Computer and Technology world.

I visited your blog and I think it has very interesting and useful posts!

So, are you interested in this idea, with your blog?
If yes, then you can register your blog, using the specific "Registration Form"!


The only thing we ask to you is to insert TechnoSNACK banner in your blog to promote this project. Or, if you prefer, you can insert a link in your blogroll.

If you like (we whould be happy, but it is not mandatory :-), you can write a post regarding TechnoSNACK project in your blog, to promote this idea.
