Doesn’t it just annoy you when they change something that just worked. I have used Chrome ‘People’ Feature to create multiple browser profiles and found this a very useful feature. They have just changed that to make it a cumbersome process. Very frustrating! You can revert the changes but it seems Google is quite set on moving forward with the new Avatar menu. Find out how to disable this annoying method for changing users, but be aware this will probably not work forever.
Also make a point of telling Google it IS NOT better than what they had before!
