Misplaced intentions and Google

Sign in faster and easier, says Google.

The reality is that it makes signing in slower and painful.

The idea is that Google stores the user name of a particular account so that the next time you sign in, you can sign in faster. Great idea.

Except that most us folks at home would have a machine that is used by a minimum of 2 people - and sometimes they have multiple accounts. And there is no way we would want to stay signed on a machine with multiple users...

So, if Google, did not, helpfully, remember the name - all I would have to do is enter the username and the password. Now, thanks to google, it chooses to remember one id - because of which I have to navigate 2 other pages before I get around to entering the user name and password.
