Web Workers Examples by greenido

Web Workers Example for the book that I'm working on (at nights).

In modern web applications there are lots of cases when we need to do some stuff in the background. The only way to do it today in most of the modern browsers is by using Web Workers. Here we will see some examples from 'hello world of web workers' to more complicated examples of using dedicated workers, shared workers and how to communicate with our (little) workers.


Modern browsers that support Web Workers.
