"Hello Browser... I'm Dart."  I was recently reminded by +Seth Ladd "don't forget that Dart targets all modern browsers," so here's a quick clip to demonstrate that

Yes, the automatic JavaScript compilation when you hit F5 in the browser is a very nice feature.
 
Seriously slick, thanks Chris! 
 
I love how it demonstrates that Dart can query the specifics of the browser.  How is the automatic JavaScript compilation achieved?  Thank you +Chris Buckett !
 
+Damon Douglas the HTTP server that Dart Editor starts up will look for changes in the source files and compile to JavaScript on demand.
 
Oh IE is supported also now? Time to move to Dart !
 
+Benjamin Zeller: note that it's IE 9, though, which does seem to be a the cutoff for a lot of web technologies.
 
I agree. IE < 9 is a ball and chain around the necks of web developers. And IE 6 is like polio: a systematic campaign to wipe it off the face of the earth is a good thing.  :)  http://www.ie6countdown.com/
 
If you're application lives in vb .net or c#, I just discovered a WebBrowser class (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.webbrowser.aspx).  Unfortunately, in my own testing of it, I still found it limited to the version of IE running on the machine.  So, I was still unable to run Dart compiled javascript.  But, if your client/organization has a modern IE installed, then you could have Dart code running possibly in legacy applications.
 
Thank you, +Chris Buckett . This is meant to run in a restricted setting called Medical Logic Modules (MLM) that live inside the desktop medical computer system. So we can't necessarily run a browser per se, but we can run vb .net code and open custom form windows. I will see if i can chrome frame this.
