        Is Safari looking to support Javascript ServiceWorkers for background tasks of idle Web Apps?

         

        I have been told that the Safari navigator.geoLocation.watchPosition() method continues to deliver position updates even when the phone screen is off or Safari is in the background. A useful feature but hard on the battery.

         

        Is this the Safari strategy going forward or are ServiceWorkers coming into play?

         

        I find the current Chrome and Firefox plances for a restricted geoLocation API (GeoFencing) particularly debilitating and hope it doesn't get up as a standard.

         

        What is Apple Safari's solution?
