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?

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

So if it can compile to Javascript it can't do anything which Javascript can't? If my assumption is correct, what's the point of it, might as well just carry on writing in Javascript!
