Dartium is a Great Idea For a New Era of WebApps and Games

As you might have heard of Google included a Dart VM on the latest Chrome Tech Preview. As they said on their blog post:

Today’s release of the Chromium + Dart VM integration is another step forward for the open source “batteries included” Dart platform. Our goal is to help you build complex, high performance apps for the modern web

Dart, just like Go, is a great mashup of Javascript and C/C++ which is great for desktop developers that are currently doing apps with C/C++ and want to move to a better and more flexible language for the web. I know that there is this new thing on Chrome called Native Client that let game (and app) developers use native code to build apps/games for the Chrome Web Store, but Dart is different since it’s cross-browser (if compiled into Javascript).

I’m sure that a lot of developers will like Google’s new language to develop games and web applications for Chrome and for other browsers too with Dart compiled into Javascript. I’ll start learning Dart for sure.
