Dart

An interpreted programming language for Web applications from Google. Introduced in 2011, Dart was initially intended as an alternate scripting language for JavaScript. Dart is used in Google Ads, and support for Dart was incorporated into Google's cloud. However, it was never added into Google's own Chrome browser, let alone IE or Firefox.

Dartium and dart2js
In addition to cloud programming, Dart can also be used two ways. Dartium is a separate Dart-enabled version of Chrome, and programmers can write in Dart and use dart2js to convert Dart source code to JavaScript. For more information, visit www.dartlang.org. See JavaScript and Google Cloud Platform.
