The Mozilla Web Workers API is a browser-based API for handling web workers, which are mechanisms for running script operations in a background thread of a web application. This prevents such operations from blocking or slowing down the main thread with their processing requirements. This API covers dedicated workers, shared workers, service workers, chrome workers, and audio workers.
Fifteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory today, in categories including Spam, Travel, Bitcoin, Surveys, and Banking. One highlight today is the Basetrip API, which provides detailed International travel information to users. Have a look at what is new for developers.
