Google may be in the process of testing multiple account sign-ins within a sole browser, a screenshot has indicated.

The screenshot surfaced on the unofficial and unendorsed Google Operating System blog on Wednesday.

The screenshot shows that the Google products that may be used for multiple accounts are Google Reader, Code, Docs, Sites, Calendar and Gmail.

In a statement, Google told ZDNet UK on Thursday that: "“ Back in May we announced that we will be rolling out changes to our infrastructure for Google Apps accounts, giving Google Apps users access to many more services. We’re currently testing this feature with many customers to get feedback on the user experience. We look forward to bringing this big improvement to the rest of our customers soon, but we have nothing further to announce at this time.”

A current work around for using multiple Google accounts at once is to use a standard Google Chrome browser for one account and Google Chrome's incognito mode to operate another account as well.

Using multiple accounts within the same browser has numerous uses, such as being able to use both a personal Gmail account and a work Gmail account at the same time, within the same browser.
