- Speedy Introduction to Web Workers;
It's a short book--at 46 pages, it may as well be a c short version: A good and pretty in-depth overview of the emerging Web Worker standard. It's a short book--at 46 pages, it may as well be a chapter from another technical book--but it's free of fluff, and laser focused on one topic, and one topic only. But this is just fine; we're only here to learn about Web Workers, after all. Now, I don't want to give away the ending, but Web Workers are actually pretty simple to use.
Green's approach here is to provide simple explanations and then demonstrate the features in action with relevant code examples. With his explanations, you should be up and running with Web Workers in an afternoon. That being said, I had a few minor quibbles closing the covers on this one. First, the sample code is available in a Github repo , but this isn't mentioned until the closing remarks in the final chapter; this is a non-sensical place for them, especially considering that there is already a perfect place to mention them in the preface.
Second, some of the code examples as they appear in the book are either rough-around-the-edges or else incomplete; for example, Example has a variable declared twice, and Example is missing the style information meaning your version doesn't look anything like the screenshot. I'm a bit of a pedant about these sorts of things, so they always rub me the wrong way, but they do not otherwise detract from the technical points that Green is trying to get a across in the book, so I won't hold that against him.

Shared web workers are not supported by IE and many other mobile browsers, therefore there is no point of learning and implementing it. View Demo. Do Not Send Email Notifications.

Introducing Web Workers
We hope that this will spur renewed interest in multi-threaded programming on the web, and lead to much better experiences for users down the road. Our research has shown that single-core CPU performance for low-cost devices has not significantly increased over the last years. As a result, from a single-core point of view, mobile devices have gotten cheaper but not faster.
