Google Chrome to get integrated Dart virtual machine

Google developers have confirmed that they plan to integrate Dart virtual machine into their Chrome web browser.

They have for now released a test edition of Chromium that comes loaded with Dart VM.

They are suggesting using this build for testing only and not for general web browsing.

Chromium developers added:

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. After more testing and developer feedback, we plan to eventually include the Dart VM in Chrome.
