It’s not surprising that Google is attempting to enable tighter integration with Chrome and it’s massive array of services. One of the newly discovered settings within Chrome 15 Canary for Windows is the ability to automatically login to Google Sites through a setting configuration in Chrome’s menus. Here’s how to access it.
From the preferences menu item under the wrench icon, head over to the Personal Stuff tab on the left hand side. That’s where you’ll find your password settings.
One thing to note: although this setting seems to enable some sort of pass-through for authentication, you’ll often find yourself still having to click “Sign-in” on many of Google’s services. So while you don’t have to constantly enter in your password credentials every time, it can be a bit misleading at first because it isn’t as “automatic” as one might think.
Often times, once you log in to one Google service there isn’t much of a problem accessing others, at least in my experience. Nevertheless, this may be a new method, or perhaps security precaution, that will base a user’s authentication via a browser instance which may not be a bad idea.
Do you think that enabling automatic Google services login in Chrome is going to be useful?
