HTMLHelp Forums _ Off Topic _ Web Workers and Worker Threads?

Posted by: Kiel Aug 24 2020, 11:19 AM

I couldn't find any resources to explain the difference between Web workers who existed for many years and included PWA and the working threads that were recently released in Node.js.

In my understanding, both are simple ways to allow JavaScript to run code in multiple threads. So why are Working Threads released as a "new" thing?
