On its new Dart website, Google has unveiled an “early preview” of its newest programming language, and project leader Lars Bak has given a talk about Dart at a conference in Denmark. Google intends the language to provide an alternative to JavaScript. In one test, Dart was able to load a 55,000-line program in 60 milliseconds, compared to 640 milliseconds for JavaScript.
