Google Chrome spellchecks multiple languages at once

Google is adding a new feature for Chrome that will help bilingual folks and ex-pats a lot. Developer François Beaufort revealed that you can now spellcheck in multiple languages, even in the same document, without getting the dreaded squiggly red lines. That's a feature that the Android SwiftKey keyboard has had for ages, but it'll save others a lot of trouble when writing in comments, blogging systems like WordPress or Google's Docs. It's now enabled in the experimental Chromium Canary browser on Windows, ChromeOS or Linux, usually a good sign it'll come to the final build soon (Chrome on Mac uses the OS X language settings). I tried it in a Google Doc, and as you can see below, it works nickel chrome.
