ISSUE-11 (hrt-workers): Web Workers support [High Resolution Time]


Raised by: Philippe Le H├ęgaret
On product: High Resolution Time

As one of the headlining features about web workers is to use them for
performance gains it makes sense to expose the sub-millisecond resolution
`now` function to web workers. As has been discussed numerous times,
Date.now is unreliable and inaccurate even at the millisecond resolution
and these inaccuracies can have a strong impact on performance- and
accuracy-sensitive applications.
