JavaScript, as a language for web applications, is widely popular and is used by a staggering majority of the apps we find on the web. Moreover, all browser vendors actively support the language. However, Google is unsatisfied with the performance of JavaScript and is trying to bring its own language, Dart, into the competition. To that end, it recently completed the first milestone.



Dart

Google has been working on Dart for quite some time. And it was only recently that the world outside of Google came to know of its existence. Naturally, other software vendors aren’t very pleased with Google’s move.

That is because in the unlikely event that Dart catches on against JavaScript, these software vendors will have to extensively tweak their software to support the new language – and that incur a lot of expenses and fatiguing workload, which everyone wishes to avoid.

Besides, JavaScript performs fairly well with most web applications and across most platforms. In fact, its quality is being improved by developers from around the world, not limited to Oracle alone. Nonetheless, Google engineers think that JavaScript doesn’t perform as fast as it should with Google Docs and a number of other Google services.

Thus, they are pushing for the Dart language. According to a key part of the Dart project, Lars Bak, “I’m pleased to announce that the M1 release of Dart is ready…This release is a more stable and comprehensive version of Dart. Moving forward, we’ll mainly focus on performance and completeness without introducing breaking changes to the Dart programming language.”

While its hard to see how Google plans to entice developers to shift to Dart, the company is offering some incentives to those who decide to do so. For instance, the Dart project comes with Dartium which is an open-source Chromium browser build and this build can directly run Dart programs in its virtual machines.  This ease of using the new language may entice some developers to go for it.
