What would be the best way to use different Gmail, StackExchange, Hotmail accounts etc. at the same time?

Currently I use different browsers (Firefox and Chrome) for different purposes. Another technique could be to have several (Windows) user accounts. I think some browsers permits different profiles.

It should be as transparent as possible. I think I could achieve this by Firefox syncing tools like Lastpass (between different profiles/accounts).

If you'd like to use multiple profiles with firefox this is easy. There is a built-in Profile Manager: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_manager#Windows

You can use the -no-remote parameter: kb.mozillazine.org/… –  CHfish Oct 30 '11 at 0:40
    
Seems to be better than different user accounts for most purposes. –  Olav Mar 2 '12 at 18:17
    
One problem I have is separating the different profiles, I can use theming, but the icons in the Windows taskbar look the same. –  Olav Mar 2 '12 at 18:18
