Top 10 Microsoft Edge flags you should use in 2020

Web browsers today have evolved into high-performance tools that allow you to access every corner of the internet and more. The features and functionalities that browsers have today are incredible and some of them were not even in the pipeline a few years ago.

One of the most powerful and feature-rich browsers today is the new Microsoft Edge browser. The successor to the Internet Explorer browser has been built from scratch and this time, Microsoft has gone for the more reliable Chromium engine to build the browser platform. It is interesting to note that the same Chromium engine is used to build the Chrome browser.

One of the features that can help you get a little more out of the Microsoft Edge browser, is flags. Using the flags menu, you can enable certain functions that you normally will not spot in your settings.

In this tutorial, we will tell you the top 25 Flags you should use in the Microsoft Edge browser.

First, let’s see how to access the flags menu.

Open the Microsoft Edge browser on your PC/laptop.

Microsoft has mentioned that these flag features are experimental, so make sure you exercise caution while enabling any of them. With that disclaimer, let’s get started.

List of Experimental Features

Number 1. Parallel Downloading.

This flag splits your download file into smaller chunks and enables parallel downloading, thereby giving you faster downloads. This feature has been around for a while but for some reason, Microsoft has let it stay as an experimental or optional function rather than taking it mainstream
