Submission + - Dart Does Physics - Just To Prove It Can! (i-programmer.info)

In the case of Dart, which is Google's replacement for JavaScript, the development is speeding ahead at a rate that is impressive but worrying. To prove that Dart is already a language that can be used, we now have a port of the well known 2D physics engine Box2D, the one Angry Birds uses, to Dart. Take a look at the demo website http://dartbox2d.googlecode.com/git/demos.html and be impressed once again at what HTML5 and JavaScript can do but take note that at the moment it only seems to work under Chrome.
