Re: PeerConnection on WebWorker

I think that probably it could be an interesting concept - try to use web 
workers to support connection while page is reloaded or URL is changed. Of 
course, it should work with the same domain only and there are a lof of 
other questions related to web workers, but at least it's something that is 
already implemented and can be used to solve the problem "no way to reload 
the page without dropping the connection"
