How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

Support Web Worker creation via blob URLs

Currently in Firefox and Chrome you can create a new Worker() using JavaScript defined as a Blob URL. In IE and Edge, you cannot.

This Blob trick is very convenient, because it allows JavaScript libraries to seamlessly expose WebWorker functionality, without having to require users to build two separate scripts.

Currently there are workarounds, but they're hacky and based on the unsafe eval(): https://github.com/padolsey/operative#no-worker-via-blob-support
