Don't Save your passwords!

Having Google save your password is a HORRIBLE idea! You don't want the next person that uses the Computer or Chromebook to have access to your accounts. If they delete your work, it could be lost forever. If they send out an unwanted email, you will be responsible. If they do an inappropriate search you could lose your computer privileges!
