why not just import new language into browser?

Programmers are always facing different environments or problems.
the differences between frontend and backend or the database or os 
kernel are minor to talented programmers.
You are laugh at yourself.

Abandoning dart doesn't mean that the way is wrong,  maybe only the 
timing is not proper.

And finally is a netro language interface is not a plugin.

an era of browser as a platform will surely come:-)
