Submission + - Dart Does Physics - Just To Prove It Can! (

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 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.
