Steps to reproduce

When enabling service workers in about:flags some network requests (without even using service workers) are being duplicated, for example when downloading files:
Simply clicking on the link in https://codepen.io/anon/pen/LjeYWE results in one file download with service workers disabled and two with service workers enabled (see attached screenshot).
That behavior is problematic when downloading files whose links only work for one time.
