The Main Thread

When should you be using Web Workers? – DasSur.ma

Very interesting article about workers and getting non UI tasks off the main thread – with justification (modern “cheap” phones), questioning modern UI frameworks that do all their virtual DOM diffing on the main thread, and some examples on how to shift off that model. In the end it comes down to user experience.
