Description Unni Vemanchery Mana 2011-03-08 09:57:46 UTC
Worker API is bit hard to use as it is.I wanted to use this API for some other purpose.But it is not supporting class intsance or reference as a method arguement to postMessage() method.It is nice to have a support for class instance or reference as an argument to postMessage().

We can't send live code (such as actual object instances or methods) across process boundaries. Web Workers is by intent a no-shared-state threading model.
