    Firstly i am running chrome.

    When i go to some websites (which i have the password stored in keychain) it auto fills in username and passwords, but i have to click ok (seems pointless).
    Other sites (such as facebook) when i load them they already have been logged in.

    How to I get it to do this for all websites.

    Thanks.

    It's not pointless. It gives you an opportunity to change the login info before actually logging in. This is helpful if you have multiple accounts on a site.
    If you clear your cookies, you'd probably have to log into them, as well.

    I just logout (i.e. log out of facebook) if i want to log into another account.

    That may be your preference, but others may not want to log in automatically, then have to log out, just to log in again. It's more efficient to be able to review or change login info before logging in the first time.

    Yes, i dont mind that, but i want to customise my mac for me. Im not suggesting every browser should do this, just wondering if i could do it on mine (and giving my reasoning).

    Set your browser to never delete cookies. That's pretty much the closest you can get. Many sites set expiration dates on their session cookies to prevent you from being able to go to, say, usaa.com and view all your banking info without providing your credentials.
