Having high hopes
But it seems Dart’s co-founders have had to backtrack on Google’s dream, announcing that a love of the language didn’t directly translate into complete Chrome dominance:
Lars Bak and Kasper Lund, co-founders of Dart, have spoken about a new web strategy focusing on the users’ need “to be more productive building web apps with Dart”. Noting developer feedback as “consistent”, they are listening to calls for better ways to debug and optimise apps across all browsers.
The remainder of the announcement also made room for Google Ads and its reliance and commitment to Dart, which Bak and Lund highlighted to show us that the interest is still there. Google Ads is recognised as supporting the new strategy, having “one million lines of Dart code and the number is growing fast”.
