    I like the aspect where Dart is hoped to become a mobile solution as well as for the web

    This was a very good but basic introduction to the Dart programming language.

    It has great possibilities. It is inevitable that a better language than JavaScript will be in the future of the web

    Dart seems understated in it's progress as a project. While it's uncertain how much sponsorship other browsers will give, I think it would benefit everyone for them to participate, especially Mozilla. Collaboration is like competition on steroids and this is not a competition against JavaScript, but rather a framework for maintaining the interoperability which makes the Internet different from anything else. Google is sponsoring the project since they have a stake in the game of open internet standards and I think we all have some skin in that game. I hope to see some RESTful integration and open PaaS support (GAE, CloudFoundry, OpenShift) oh yeah and Seth mentioned node.dart which sounded really awesome.
