Interesting to hear the comments on Dart. From all of the benchmarks I've ever seen, Dart code (event running in the Dart VM) is generally slower than the equivalent JS. Which is fine. Just leads you to conclude that Dart is about the syntax more than the speed. There are literally dozens of languages out there doing the same type of thing now. Some older. Some newer. Not much to get excited about unless you just love to drink Google KoolAid

you are mistaken. you even mentioned a VM built around the language and then ended up with it's "about syntax more than speed". this makes me feel a little uncomfortable.

Google is not the only one at the party. TypeScript (http://www.typescriptlang.org), which is also opensource, appears to do the same thing. Few people know that Microsoft has added support for compiling TypeScript into Visual Studio 2013.

Please, can you share your benchmarks?

Sounds like C# only less well thought out. Also, the business about Dartium certainly sounds like a bad idea unless you are OK with Google owning the whole chain from server to browser.
