Day 1 - You Got Em

Perhaps you heard about Service Workers or have even see a demo of their usage with QuickBase. Well in this first post about using Service Workers with QuickBase I want to simply convince you they are safe, used by the largest internet based companies and in fact you already have them installed on your computer and don't even know it. Just load up your Chrome browser and visit this special URL:

Service Worker Internals
chrome://serviceworker-internals/ 

On the computer I am currently using I have Service Workers installed from Google.com, Youtube.com, Weather.com, Dropbox.com and Twitter.com just from my casual browsing (this is a non-development computer). On my development computers I have hundreds of Service Workers that I have personally installed and a couple of dozen from my own casual browsing history. What Service Workers did you find on your computer?
