Google Dart, the company’s language designed to improve on JavaScript has been released in a test version of its browser giving it the ability to run programs written in Dart.

This technology preview allows you to run your Dart programs directly on the Dart VM in Chromium and avoid a separate compilation step. Over time, these programs will take advantage of the VM’s faster performance and lower startup latency.

Dart has been designed from the start to work with the entire modern web, and we’re simultaneously continuing to improve our fast Dart-to-JavaScript compiler. Both the Dart VM and modern JavaScript engines are first-class targets for Dart.

This release of Chromium with Dart VM integration is a technology preview, and should not be used for day-to-day browsing. So far Mac and Linux binaries are available, but no details about other platforms. For more details visit chromium blog.
