You know what? I think Service Worker is probably one of the misrepresented technology we currently have. When I hear people speaking about it, the topic is always serving your app when a user is offline. However, the technology can do so much more than that and every week I’m reading another article about what we can do with Service Worker. This week for example, we can learn how to use it for cross-tab messaging and to load off requests into the background with the Background Sync API. I think this toolset we now have in our browsers already allows us to build great experiences regardless of the network state and now it’s up to us to build them so that users love the eperience. And that’s probably the hardest part. Happy weekend!
