Here's something that hidden pages can help with that this solution can't:

Let's say you're watching ten stocks on Google Finance, each in their
own window.

Right now, each page has to have its own connection to the server.
Since these are polling connections, the experience is going to be
very bad.

With a hidden page that's accessible to all Google Finance visible
pages, they could share a connection to the server. Even if the hidden
page is closed when the last Google Finance page is closed, this is a
better situation than we currently have.
