ECMA Is Working On Standardizing Google's Dart
Phoronix: ECMA Is Working On Standardizing Google's Dart
They just should standartize some bytecode/virtual machine and everyone will compile their web-languages to that bytecode.

Why bytecode? Wasn't Java's bytecode standardized? And people don't use it still?

Is this even supported by any browsers yet? Chrome?

Obviously this says nothing about its suitability as a language for large codebases, or ease of use, but anything has to be better than js when it come to handling scope (which is too damned tricky).
Many people use it. Groovy, Scala, Clojure, and Ceylon all compile to java bytecode. People don't use it for web client side development, and I guess it's about the performance.

You seem to mean the 1st point.
