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?

Personal experience is that you always lose performance writing in compiled languages, although it is usually much easier.

I assume it is run natively on Chrome with no need for Javascript at all, is it compiled in any way or interpreted directly?
