I was netdiving this evening and discovered that Firefox 3.5+ and
applications via "Web Workers" where one script delegates work to a
separate OS-level thread.
Now that I've learned of it, there's some slow code I wrote a few
months ago that I have to revisit, and I think that I might think
about building it to support Workers where available.
