Today’s xkcd comic convinced me, I need to sign up for Google+

So I fired up a new tab in Chrome — my preferred web browser — and went to, only to see this error:

After Google upgraded their Google Apps suite to match the Gmail suite, I didn’t think I’d see something like this. But apparently Google Apps hosted e-mail accounts don’t yet have full parity with Gmail accounts.

The problem I have right now is that since Gmail and Google Apps use the same cookie, I can’t stay logged into both a Gmail account AND my Google Apps e-mail with the same browser. The browser makes me choose one or the other. So I’m forced to use a different browser for each account: Chrome for, Firefox for Gmail, Safari for a different personal Gmail, etc.
