Google believes Dart speeds up both developers and the programs they write, but skeptics worry that it fragments Web programming and undermines the industry's focus on better JavaScript. So far, it's been a largely academic debate, but that will change in coming months.

That's because Google right now is building Dart technology directly into Chrome.

Does anyone here use Dart?

I'm considering it for my next personal project, just for the sake of trying it out and experimenting. Probably wouldn't bring it up at my next project planning at work though.

Good thing about Dart is that it maintains compatibility by compiling to JS on non Dart-enabled browsers, although that impacts the performance.

Courious whether it will follow the fate of GWT.
