First and foremost, a stable release means Dart is ready for primetime. Whether you’ve been waiting for the dust to settle before getting into the language or are taking your first steps into web development, Google provides a number of tools to make coding and debugging Dart easier.
The Eclipse-based Dart Editor is the perfect development environment for anyone just trying out Dart or wanting up-to-date editor support for the latest Dart releases. The editor comes bundled with the Dart download and running a project will open up a custom-built version of Chromium called Dartium that includes a Dart virtual machine.
But for Chrome users, the future of Dart is tentatively optimistic. Work has already begun on bringing the Dart VM into mainline Chrome, but not everyone thinks Google have the answer just yet.
Ultimately, it isn’t so much a matter of what Dart can bring to you as a Chrome user directly, but how it can help developers create better web content and experiences for you.
