When Dart will be available by Default in Google Chrome?

I would like to know when we will see Dart coming bundled on Google Chrome, so I will not need Dartium to run my pure Dart Applications.

Hi,

You don't need Dartium to run Dart applications: applications written in Dart will run in any modern browser.

Dartium is useful, however, to provide live debugging support and integration with the code editor - in other words, at present, it makes a great developer tool.

Rest assured, though, that the Dart VM will make its way into Chrome, however as Dart (the language, and Dart the VM) is still pre 1.0, it won't happen just yet, I would expect it to happen after some time after Dart reaches version 1.0 - earlier announced in an interview that 1.0 is hoped to happen this year - caveat: schedules always change

Once Dart does get into Chrome, you can expect the performance of the VM to surpass that of JavaScript, opening up greater possibilities for developers to perform a wider range of processing - something particularly of interest to game developers.

(And don't forget that Chrome is also available on Android, and an ARM port of the Dart VM is under way... draw your own conclusions)
