"Web Worker" Extension/App/Process(?) in Chrome OS

This morning, I discovered another a little something that's at least new to me in Chrome OS:

Extension, app, process, plugin?  What is Web Worker?
I believe Web Worker has something to do with Google Docs because it seems to have disappeared after I closed out the two docs tabs ("apps") shown, above, and then reappeared, after reopening one.

I did a brief bit of research and came up with . . . nothing.  So, guys, what's this Web Worker instance in my task manager?  Please sound off below or on my Google+ post.
