Introducing Dart, Google’s answer to JavaScript | ZDNet

Google has taken the lid off an early preview of Dart, a new web programming language aimed at helping developers address what the search giant sees as the shortcomings of JavaScript, with a focus on developing apps that scale from tiny to huge.

In his Google Code blog entry, Dart software engineer Lars Bak lists the following as the new language’s design goals:

Create a structured yet flexible language for web programming.

Make Dart feel familiar and natural to programmers and thus easy to learn.

Ensure that Dart delivers high performance on all modern web browsers and environments ranging from small handheld devices to server-side execution.
