Sometimes, reloading the page will get you to a log-in screen; sometimes you have to log in via a different Google service altogether. “Trying again in a few seconds” never works. All in all, it feels very sloppy and inconsistent.
I understand that for security reasons, Google will want to check your password every so often. But if that’s what’s happening, take me straight to the log-in screen and tell me that: don’t present me with a generic error message and force me to work out I need a sign-in.
So there’s some thoughts, Google; how about it?
