Well, in IE's defense, this is not specifically allowed by: http://www.w3.org/TR/workers/#dom-worker. Regardless, the product team is working to fix this so that it works in IE as well. Stay tuned. I updated the Connect bug below.

Why IE(11) does not allow this while this is working on FF and Chrome? 
[1] seems to suggest that it is "by design".
