I login to the SE network with my GMail Open ID, but when I came to SuperUser.com today on another computer that's not mine, I was asked to login through the owner's GMail account. Is there a way to temporarily login with my GMail OpenID and let them stay logged in under their GMail for GMail? Even if it's just temporary, but I don't think I can word this right
I would tend to doubt it, but there might be something involving GMails's multiple login.– soandosDec 16, 2011 at 3:05
1@soandos But that would mean that I'd have to link my login to theirs :(– Canadian LukeDec 16, 2011 at 3:06
Rgiht, hence I don't think it is possible.– soandosDec 16, 2011 at 4:08
@soandos That sucks... Should I make a feature suggestion for it then on SE meta?– Canadian LukeDec 16, 2011 at 4:50
1maybe use a secondary open ID instead?– Journeyman Geek ModDec 16, 2011 at 5:05

Yes, logout of the existing GMail account, logout of Stack Exchange. Then login to Stack Exchange - since you're not logged in to Gmail, you can login to your Google Account and then login to Stack Exchange.
Another option is to make use of Private Browsing/Incognito/inPrivate modes of different browsers

cheers, @Luke !– Sathyajith Bhat ModDec 18, 2011 at 9:49
I always carry around a USB drive with PortableApps.com. It may be worth looking into the portable versions of Firefox, Chrome, etc. if the computers are running Windows.
