Google's new interface requires an additional step to switch accounts:

  1. Click email/ID in upper right-hand corner
  2. Click "Switch account" (This is the additional step.)
  3. Click account or "Sign in to another account..."

Now, I rarely use the first menu items that show up ("View profile, Account settings, Privacy"), but I use the switch account functionality many times per day.

Is there a way to directly display the list of accounts by default? (the menu as it appears after clicking "Switch account"

Extensions/User-side JavaScript OK; solutions for Chrome and Opera browsers preferred.

This simple script currently just adds a few styles to show the available accounts on first click.

Hope this helps.


Take a look at this userscript

It replaces the Sign Out link with a select list of accounts, so you you can instantly switch between accounts without logging out.
