-  <p>Shared workers are identified in one of two ways: either by the
-  URL of the script used to create it, or by explicit name. When
-  created by name, the URL used by the first page to create the worker
-  with that name is the URL of the script that will be used for that
-  worker. This allows multiple applications on a domain to all use a
-  single shared worker to provide a common service, without the
-  applications having to keep track of a common URL for the script
-  used to provide the service.</p>
