Google allows multiple simultaneous login

Google had recently introduces a very useful feature.
Most people had signed up separately for different Google services like Youtube, Orkut initially.
Ever since Google converted all accounts into Google accounts, simultaneously logging into those services became impossible and most users had to resort to using different browsers at the same time.
Youtube in Firefox, Gmail in IE etc became the norms to use multiple Google accounts simulaneously.
All these issues were solved, when Google introduced "Multiple Sign-in" feature.

When signed in into one account, the profile menu has the link to "Sign in into another account".

In above screenshot, both accounts are listed in the drop-down and the user can switch between the accounts seamlessly.
