Trending March 2024 # Should You Use Nofollow, Sponsored, Or Ugc Links? # Suggested April 2024 # Top 12 Popular

You are reading the article Should You Use Nofollow, Sponsored, Or Ugc Links? updated in March 2024 on the website We hope that the information we have shared is helpful to you. If you find the content interesting and meaningful, please share it with your friends and continue to follow and support us for the latest updates. Suggested April 2024 Should You Use Nofollow, Sponsored, Or Ugc Links?

Today’s question comes from Aishwarya in Queensland, who asks:

“Is it necessary to use Nofollow, Sponsored or UGC links (rel=”sponsored”, rel=”follow” or rel=”nofollow sponsored”) in the coupons/vouchers/offers websites where there are lot of outbound links? If yes, which of the links above is better to use.”

Great question, Aishwarya!

Yes, it’s absolutely necessary to use these attributes on your outbound links.

Aside from the U.S., UK, and the EU each having its own unique laws and rules about needing to disclose, Google has its own version and mentions it in their guidelines, too. Here is an example of that.

Google also applied a penalty a few years back specifically for sites that aren’t disclosing.

I talked about how Google can tell if you are or are not disclosing in this post.

Because you asked about coupons, in particular, I’ll assume you’re a vouchers website and answer for your likely situation.

Here is how I recommend doing the attribute.


You are likely earning commissions or getting paid.

This would mean you’ll want to use sponsored because you’re not placing the link there to be nice.

This includes affiliate links, media buys, products for review, and when you have custom coupon codes that are being used to track from the page.


If you aren’t making money and just sourcing coupon codes with no monetary gain, then leave it as a follow link, and don’t worry.

That means the store is trustworthy and should have followed links.


There are multiple situations here.

1. If the website you are linking to is not something you trust, then you shouldn’t be building a page for coupons for that store.

Ask yourself, “Why would you refer website visitors to a store that isn’t trustworthy?”

It doesn’t make sense to link to them, so simply delete that page instead of using no-follow.

If you insist on having the page, then nofollow is correct but not recommended.

2. If the links are not affiliate, PR, or paid media and you added them because the store’s deal is worth mentioning, then follow is the right way to go.

This is because there is no monetary incentive and you feel the website is a good resource for your webpage visitors.

UGC & User-Submitted Coupons

Just like nofollow above, this is situational:

If the page is non-branded (ie.: “Valentine’s Coupons”) and coupons are user-submitted, use UGC.

If it is user-submitted and there is no affiliate relationship, make it UGC.

Affiliate Links

These should be sponsored because you are posting them with the goal of earning a commission.

Hopefully this helps answer your question about coupon websites and which link attributes to use.

If it doesn’t, please feel free to reach out to me so I can look at your website and understand the specific situation.

Thank you for the question!

Why You Should Use Ubuntu Lts

One of the most common issues I see among newer Linux users is the desire to upgrade their distribution needlessly to a new bleeding-edge version. This is especially true with those who use Ubuntu and its derivatives. In this article, I’ll explain why most people would be much better off sticking to stable distribution releases that have been “in the wild” for six months or longer.

I’ll be among the first to toss a brand spanking new release of my favorite distro onto a test rig. It’s fun getting to see what’s new. But to do this blindly with a production box is just asking for trouble. To be fair, I’ve had perhaps three show-stopping issues with Ubuntu-based derivatives – ever. By show-stopping, I mean issues that nothing I did provided me with a workaround solution to a serious bug.

I’ve had oodles of minor issues that were fixable but also proved to be a time suck when stacked on top of one another. Ten minutes here, twenty minutes there — after a while I found that using bleeding-edge releases wasn’t really where I wanted to spend my time. To be clear, these issues were incredibly minor, and for most folks would be annoying at most. But I have a desktop experience I like and changes to it bother me deeply.

This also meant that “rolling release” distros weren’t a good fit for my desktop expectations either. Unlike fixed releases, rolling releases have both bug fixes and new bugs with greater speed and frequency because updates happen more often. These issues aren’t insurmountable, but making “minor tweaks” every few days wasn’t a great match for my desktop needs.

So who should upgrade to the latest release of Ubuntu and its derivatives? Certainly not most people in my opinion. Unless you purchasing bleeding-edge hardware on a regular basis or find a bug in a desktop environment that is fixed in a newer release, most people should stick to what’s currently working.

To be completely clear – do try out the latest and greatest, but don’t do so on a production PC. For me, it’s simply a matter of how I want to spend my free time: Restore a previous distribution release or hang out with friends and family?

As a side note, one could argue that taking a snapshot of one’s current setup would allow them to have their cake and eat it too. I’d argue that would require one to take said snapshot accurately or configure their system to do so automatically…with a degree of accuracy. For many folks, this would be a leap of faith.

Over the years I’ve found that XFCE and GNOME 2 (now MATE) have provided me with the most bulletproof user experience. This has allowed me to stick with a Ubuntu LTS derivative longer because I’m not looking to “fix” desktop environment bugs that one might define as show-stopping.

I honestly can’t say the same of other desktop environments. I completely agree that KDE and GNOME 3 are very attractive, feature-rich desktop environments. However, I’ve also found over the years that they’re hit and miss in terms of issues that bother me. A bug here, a broken extension there. Sure, they are fixed a few months later, but they disrupt my expectation of how my desktop should function.

Now to be fair, I’ve had very positive KDE experiences with OpenSuSE Leap and PCLinuxOS. This makes sense as both of these distributions focus on stability. By contrast, KDE on bleeding-edge distros tends to be where I’ve experienced my hit-or-miss moments. Same with GNOME 3 – using it on a stable branch of Debian feels great, but using it on a freshly released distribution leaves me open to the common issue of “GNOME extension catch up.” This is a fun game where you install GNOME 3 and see which extensions have been disabled or broken with the desktop update. Again, some of you won’t care – others like myself depend on many of those extensions for a fluid desktop experience. The single worst offender with broken extensions after upgrading to a new release was Linux Mint with Cinnamon.

4 Reasons Why Bloggers Should Give Links

It’s sad to say that many sites are still link hogs, with some editorial policies stating specifically that outbound links are not to be given unless under special, and incredibly specific, circumstances. Why all the link hoarding?

Well, luckily, bloggers have a say in the matter when their editorial decisions are purely their own, and it’s good to see that more bloggers are becoming more generous and strategic in their linking decisions, but for those who need some more incentive to link out, or are link hoards entirely, here are a few reasons you MUST give links:

1. You offer value to your readers who then see you are a great resource when you link to informative articles

When you’re sharing more information than what is necessary, you are thought of as the hub to go to for information on a topic, the ‘thought leader’ in your niche, because you know all the other great blogs and posts relevant to what you are writing about.

While, yes, you are pretty much sending your readers over to another site, allowing them to engage somewhere you don’t manage or benefit from, your readers will remember you for sending them to the other articles because if you linked to useful places, you will have given them more value than you could have on your blog unless you were to plagiarize and never give attribution to the source.

2. Stories are more credible when you’re referencing other quality works

Unless you’re a blogger with more than 25 years of experience in a field, or part of a research firm investing tens of or even hundreds of thousands of dollars into a study, not all of your posts will be read with 100% credibility unless you have some solid facts to support your writings, and those solid facts can come from in-house case studies, experiments and surveys, so it’s useful for to increase your credibility by referring to other experts who have similar thoughts and opinions.

3. You gain (not lose) pagerank when you link to authoritative sites and stories, even when the sites you’re linking too aren’t linking back to you

Since you’re showing the search engines you’re not a link hoard, and are linking to useful sites and stories, your post will be deemed as more authoritative by the search engines because you’re sharing credible content that will clearly benefit your users, and searchers who the search engines may send your way.

Sometimes the most relevant result a search engine can offer, especially for searches that just don’t have one right answer, is the result with a great summary of all the best answers out there with attribution to the original sources for further detail. Think chúng tôi but less about content aggregation and more value added.

4. You spread some goodwill when you give links because when you give links, you’re likely to get links from those who you’ve given links to and others too

What goes around comes around. In the karmic linking world, if you give links, you’re more likely to get links from the sites you’re linking too who will be thankful you showed them link love first. You are also more likely to get links from others who see your credible post that is linking to other quality posts. Since you’re linking to those other great posts, your post may look like the most comprehensive post of them all, making you the most likely candidate for link love!

Top 10 Paytm Alternatives You Should Use

Paytm is one of the largest and the fastest growing internet based services in India. After the demonetisation, its vigorous push towards its adoption by small and medium size businesses has turned it into the next best thing. Now, chances are that most of the shops you visit keep Paytm as a payment option. Not only that, Paytm now offers a myriad of services on its platform including payments, money transfer, shopping, recharge facilities, bill payments, and movie, bus and air tickets among others. Heck, it even sells digital gold on its platform. Basically, Paytm has become a behemoth which does almost anything and everything. However, in its aspirations of growing fast and offering everything, it no longer is the best in class at most of the things that it does. For every service that it offers, there’s something out there which does it better, and today we are going to focus on them. So, here are the top 10 Paytm alternatives that you can use today:

Paytm Alternatives

Before we start, I just want to make one thing clear. As of writing this article, there is no other service which even comes close to Paytm, if you just take into account the sheer categories of services that it offers. If you are looking for a one stop solution for everything, you are better off with Paytm, as you don’t have any other option. However, as I mentioned earlier, for all the services that Paytm offers, there are apps which are better at them. So, if you are someone who can deal with multiple apps to get the best experience and the best deals, this list is especially for you.

Mobile Recharges, Bill And Merchant Payments 1. Mobikwik

If you are looking for a Paytm alternative for recharges and bill payments, Mobikwik is possibly the closest thing that you will find. Mobikwik can do a lot of stuff that Paytm does. For example, you can keep money in its wallet and use it for bill payments, recharges, and merchant payments. In fact, since its foray into the merchant payments segment, its reach has been increasing steadily. Now, the number of shops who accept Mobikwik as a payment method is rivalling that of Paytm. When it comes to mobile recharges and bill payments, Mobikwik is beating Paytm with its fluid and clean interface and instantaneous transactions.

Platforms: Website (Android, iOS)

2. FreeCharge

FreeCharge is the service which made online mobile recharges and bill payment popular. It did that by providing a simple and smooth process along with various coupons which could be used at its partner stores to get discounts. When I used FreeCharge for the first time, I instantly fell in love with the service, that is, until it was acquired by Snapdeal for a whopping 400 million US dollars. Since then the service has seen a downfall as it strayed away from its initial vision. Initially, FreeCharge was a service where you could get the best deals while paying your bills or carrying out mobile recharges, not anymore. However, one thing that still remains in FreeCharge’s favour is its ease of use.

I have done uncountable transactions on FreeCharge (for mobile recharges and bill payments) and not even a single one of them has failed. Every recharge I made was successful and instantaneous. It also keeps the most updated version of the different plans and pricing provided by carriers for every state. If you are searching for your perfect plan (prepaid or postpaid), FreeCharge is the place to look for it. Also, FreeCharge has also started supporting merchant payments and although it’s not as widely accepted as Paytm or Mobikwik, the count is slowly but steadily increasing. However, for me, that and other additional features don’t even matter, as I am happy using it just for mobile recharges and bill payments.

Send And Receive Money 1. PhonePe

Although Paytm has evolved to become a payments bank to facilitate the transfer of money between its users, it still lags behind when it comes to adopting the latest mobile payment technology, which is UPI.

UPI or Unified Payment Interface is the initiative of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and National Payment Corporation of India (NPCI), to bring easy and instantaneous transfer of funds between the users. The best thing about this method of money transfer is that the money is directly moving between the users’ (sender and receiver) bank accounts. There is no digital wallet in between. Moreover, the users don’t have to input the account details of the receiver, they can transfer the money just by using their mobile number which is linked to their bank accounts.

Also, since you are not using an e-wallet, there is no restriction on the total amount of money you can transfer (with Paytm it’s INR 1 lakh/month). UPI also supports two-factor authentication which is more secure. So, in nutshell, UPI is better than using e-wallets in almost every regard. Today, if you want to send or receive money, UPI is the best method to do so, and PhonePe is the best app that supports UPI. Although almost all the banks have come out with their own version of UPI app, PhonePe is still the best among all of them. First of all, it supports multiple bank accounts. Secondly, its interface is refined and easy to navigate. Lastly, it also supports mobile recharges and bill payment with lucrative cash back offers. These reasons make PhonePe stand out in the crowd.

Platforms: Website (Android, iOS)

2. Chillr

Chillr is another UPI based service which allows you to send and receive money utilising the Unified Payment Interface. It just works like PhonePe. You can send and receive money directly from your bank accounts without the need of using an e-wallet. Apart from that, it also does all the usual things like mobile recharges and bill payments. The hotel, flight and bus ticket booking services are coming soon. Chillr has included one unique feature which allows friends to split a bill between themselves. If you are someone who always goes out for dining in a group of friends, you will love this feature. Basically, the guy who paid can split the bill inside Chillr and it will send pending payment notification to all the friends. Friends can pay him back by authorizing the transaction with their UPI PIN. It is a small and yet a nifty feature to have.

Platforms: Website (Android, iOS)

Mobile Wallets 1. Oxygen Wallet

Oxygen is also a payment gateway accepted by almost all online merchants in India. This has allowed Oxygen to tie up with these merchant sites and provide you with extra benefits. The service also lets you create gift cards for numerous merchants including Amazon, Westside, BookMyShow, KFC, and Cleartrip among others. So, next time if you don’t know what to gift your loved ones, you can just send a gift card and they can buy anything they want. If you are looking for an e-wallet application, Oxygen is the best one out there. I really love the ability to create virtual VISA Cards and Gift Cards. At the end of the day, I would prefer Oxygen wallet over Paytm all the time.

Platforms: Website (Android, iOS)

2. ItzCash

ItzCash is a simple e-wallet application which has all the basic functions of an e-wallet. You can recharge your wallet and use it to carry out mobile recharges and bill payments. You can receive and send money in your wallet. It supports various types of bill payment services including DTH, gas, water, and electricity among others. If you are looking for a basic wallet application which gets the job done, this one is for you. There are no frills and whistles here. It is a simple e-wallet application which is fast and reliable. Paytm wallet has become a very complex product and if you wanted to go back to its simpler days, ItzCash is your best bet to do that.

Platforms: Website (Android, iOS)

Online Shopping 1. Amazon

Recently Amazon has also launched its own e-wallet service called the Amazon Pay Balance. Although right now it’s in its nascent stage, there’s no doubt it will evolve into a great product. Amazon Pay is one of the best payment gateways used across the world. Integrating it with its wallet service in India will be not a great hurdle for Amazon. Even if Amazon has not launched its e-wallet service, it’s e-commerce service alone beats the Paytm Mall hands down. Once you factor in the Prime Video service of Amazon, it becomes a deal that you cannot refuse. If you are looking to shop online, Amazon is one of the best Paytm alternatives out there.

2. Flipkart

Flipkart is India’s first e-commerce platform and it’s still alive and kicking. While most of the homegrown e-commerce platform has been fighting just to survive, Flipkart has emerged as a winner. Flipkart’s product selection and service quality are rivaled only by Amazon. Anything you want to buy, you will get it here. Like Amazon’s Prime service, Flipkart has also launched its own F-Assured service which promises quality products with faster delivery. Flipkart is currently the market leader in India, with a 57% market share when it comes to online purchases.

Flipkart also owns Myntra and Jabong, the two biggest fashion e-commerce marketplace in India. When it comes to fashion, Flipkart has the market dominance hands down. As a rule of thumb, I prefer buying electronics on Amazon and clothing and accessories on Myntra, because they are the best places to do that. Paytm has a lot to do if it wants to compete with these behemoths of e-commerce in India.

Platforms: Website (Android, iOS)

Travel 1. MakeMyTrip

Their latest offering is intercity cabs services. Now, you can book cabs for all your intercity travel needs at really cheap prices. This is a good news for anyone looking for a weekend getaway. Basically, whether you are planning a visit, a holiday, or a weekend getaway, MakeMyTrip can help you do all that. Their pricing is one of the best in the market and their partners are also really good. This is one of the best Paytm alternatives for all your travel needs.

Platforms: Website (Android, iOS)

2. Goibibo

Goibibo was the biggest competitor to MakeMyTrip that is until it was acquired by the later. Still, all the features which made Goibibo stand out are still here as it is still running as a separate entity. The biggest reason behind using Goibibo over MakeMyTrip is its cash-back feature. Just like Paytm, you earn cash-back on every flight and hotel booking. This cash-back lives in your account as GoCash and can be used for any future bookings. The cash-back offers vary from time to time and sometimes you can get unbelievable deals here. Goibibo offers one of the lowest pricing for flights and bus tickets in the market. You should always check this one out before you make a booking.

The Best Paytm Alternatives Out There

Should You Buy A Gaming Pc Or A Console Or Neither?

Gaming PC or console – which one should you pick? If you want to get into gaming, it can be a difficult decision.

In this article, we’ll lay down the key differences so that you can find out which option is more suitable for you. If you choose a console, you’ll also need to think about which console to get. We’ll help with that, too.

Table of Contents

You may have also noticed we wrote “neither” in the title of this article too. So how can you game without either of these devices? Well, it’s almost 2023 and both Microsoft and Nvidia are either now offering or will soon be offering gaming over the Internet, or game streaming.

If you have a fast Internet connection, a regular PC will allow you to game at high-resolution for a low price. It’s worth checking out before spending any money at all. Nvidia’s gaming anywhere product is Nvidia Geforce Now and Microsoft’s is called Project xCloud.

Even Google is getting into the game. You can actually play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on your PC using just Google Chrome. It’s called Project Stream and works quite well.

Hopefully, once you have finished reading this article, you’ll know whether you should buy a gaming PC or a console or just stream games.


Perhaps the easiest place to start is the price. If you simply can’t afford to spend any money, your best option would be to try and get the most out of your current rig. If you have a modest budget, a console may be the immediate easy choice.

Getting set up with a gaming PC that can handle most modern games reliably can easily cost you $800-$1000. You can build cheaper PCs, but you are compromising on what makes a gaming PC so great – high quality graphics and great frame rate.

You also have to factor in a gaming mouse, keyboard, and a good monitor if you haven’t got one already.

For a console, it’s easy to get set up by buying one of the many console bundles out there. With a bundle, you can pay $300 to $400 to get a new console, a game, and a controller. Pay just a little more and you can get the more powerful Xbox One X or PS4 Pro variants.

As you can see, the difference in price is quite large. Paying more for the PC has its benefits, and we’ll talk more about this below, but if you just want to play some video games without extra hassle or money, a console is the best choice.

Also, going back to high quality graphics and great frame rate, the One X and PS4 Pro can output at 4K up to 60 fps, which even a lot of high-end PCs struggle to do.

In addition to these options, Microsoft has also announced Xbox All Access, a monthly subscription that gives you access to a Xbox console, Xbox Game Pass and Xbox Live Gold. So, if you don’t want to pay everything upfront, this is a good option.

Finally, if you decide to go the streaming route, you’ll end up paying a monthly fee. At this point, no one really knows what it is since all of these services are in beta, but we’re guessing it’ll be in the range of $10 to $30 a month.


This is one that most often goes in the favor of the console. Both Microsoft and Sony pay a lot of money to get the rights to exclusive titles and this often means you’ll be missing out if you only have a gaming PC.

Some of the best triple A titles only get launched on consoles, and many other games get pushed to console far before PC players get the chance to play them. But it’s not as straightforward as one would first assume.

First party exclusives are more abundant on the PS4. Sony has put in a lot of effort to build a strong collection of first party developers.

You have an incredible range of highly rated exclusives on the PS4 like God of War, Uncharted, The Last of Us, Spider-Man, Bloodborne, and Horizon Zero Dawn.

For Xbox, it’s not as much of a concern. Because Microsoft owns Windows, you’ll see them push most of their exclusives to both PC and Xbox One. You won’t be able to play older classics like the earlier Halo games or Gears of War but future releases in these franchises will be available on the PC.

The PC does get some games that the consoles don’t, too, but usually they are titles from indie developers that are still in development. Some great examples include open world survival game SCUM, survival game Rust, strategy game Divinity: Original Sin II, and many more.

In summary, a console, especially a PS4, is almost crucial for great exclusive single player games. But on the other hand, the PC has some excellent strategy and multiplayer focused exclusives. It all depends on what types of games you like to play.

If you’re new to gaming, though, the offering from consoles, particularly the PS4, is a better choice. The developers of these games are backed by multi-million dollar publishers so you’ll know you’ll be playing a quality, bug free experience.

Performance and Graphics

This is where the PC really sets itself apart from the consoles. Once you play a video game on a PC with a crisp frame rate and ultra graphics, you’ll never want to go back.

The trouble is, to get a high frame rate and the highest graphics, you’ll often need to fork out over $1,000. You’ll need a high end graphics card, a high end processor, SSD storage, and a good amount of RAM.

The sentiment ‘you get what you pay for’ is very true here. You can pay $300-$400 for a PC, but the performance and graphics may even be worse than a PS4 or Xbox One X.

Pay $700-$1000 and you’ll have a decent PC that can play most games at a reasonable frame rate – better than what a console can offer.

You are looking at roughly $1,500-$2,000 for a top of the range gaming PC. In addition, you’ll need to spend extra for a high frame rate monitor, high-resolution HDR monitor, which can easily add another $500 to $1000 to the price tag.

For hardcore gamers, this investment is reasonable, and the experience if well worth it. If you’re new to gaming, investing so much may seem daunting.

In regards to the streaming services, it’s going to be hard to match the graphics of a gaming PC or a console, but for those that don’t care so much about the absolute best graphics, it’s worth trying. I was impressed with the quality of Project Stream on my 1440p monitor, considering it’s free right now.

Other Features

Thankfully, gaming consoles now double up as media streaming platforms. You can use apps like Netflix, HBO, and YouTube to watch content straight from your console.

PCs will always be a step up from what a gaming console can offer, however. In fact, gaming PCs in particular are powerful enough to do many tasks.

You can use a gaming PC for work, web browsing, video and photo editing, and pretty much anything else you could ever need a PC for. If you need a PC for work anyway, you could consider killing two birds with one stone by purchasing a gaming PC.

Whilst a gaming console is most often used to play games, a gaming PC is just a standard PC equipped with the hardware needed to play games.

PC gaming is also more ‘open source’ than console gaming. This means that many PC games have support for modding. Some modding communities are so large that you can essentially get hundreds of hours of extra community-made content for free from platforms like Steam Workshop or Nexus Mods.

Consider Your Friends

Gaming can be one of the best social experiences in the world, so if you have friends that play games, it might make sense to ask them what platform they play on first.

For many people, this can be the main deciding factor on what platform to buy, so make sure to consider it before making your decision.

Sitting Preference and Play Style

This may seem like an odd one, but it should be considered. Consoles are designed to be played from the comfort of your couch. They are easy to play in a relaxed position. Whilst it’s possible to get accessories that let you play your PC from the couch, typically, playing PC games requires you to be sitting up at a desk.

Another thing to consider is the difference between using a controller and a mouse/keyboard. The former is a great starting point for any gamer, and it’s far easier to get to grips with.

Using a mouse and keyboard takes time to learn, but overall it’s common knowledge that it’s easier to aim and control your character with a mouse and keyboard. The mouse allows more precise movement and the keyboard features many more buttons.

Would you prefer a casual, laid back experience, or a more engaging, competitive style experience? A console works best for casual gaming, whilst a PC is better for those more serious about gaming.


Thanks for reading our guide to picking a PC or gaming console or streaming. In summary, we’d suggest a console or streaming for those new to gaming or those on a budget. PC gaming is a great step up from that if you want to get more seriously involved with your video game hobby.

We hope the information we have provided has helped. After reading this, what platform will you choose?

14 Best Microsoft Edge Flags You Should Use

After Microsoft adopted the Chromium engine for its Edge browser, things have taken a wild turn. The Chromium Edge has amassed a market share of 10.22%, taking the second spot after Chrome. It’s obviously clear that access to Chrome extensions on Microsoft Edge, support for flags, and great battery life has made it a solid choice among the users. So if you have fully moved to Microsoft Edge, it’s time you learn some of the best Edge flags. In this article, we bring you the 14 best Microsoft Edge flags which can improve your productivity and add many utilities to your browser. On that note, let’s begin.

Best Microsoft Edge Flags (December 2023)

Here, we have mentioned the best flags for Microsoft Edge. Keep in mind, these flags are only applicable on desktop and not on the Android version of Edge. Microsoft brought the Flags feature to its Android browser four months back, but so far, there is only one flag available. With that said, here are the top MS Edge flags in 2023, follow the list below.

How to Enable Flags on Microsoft Edge

You can easily enable flags on Microsoft Edge. Just copy edge://flags/ and paste it into the address bar. Now, hit enter and you will land on the Flags page. From here, you can search for specific flags and enable them from the drop-down menu. Now, restart the browser and the flag will be applied.

List of Top Flags for Microsoft Edge 1. Force Dark Mode for Web Contents

And the best part is that the earlier issue of inverting the images has been resolved. So go ahead and choose “Enabled” from the drop-down menu and restart your browser to get the dark mode experience everywhere on the browser.

2. Tab Groups

Tab Groups is another Microsoft Edge flag that you must use to organize tabs in a simple manner. It’s one of the most useful flags for tab hoarders. With “Tab Groups” turned on, you can organize tabs into visually distinct groups. For example, you can organize a group of tabs in a common color so that you can easily move to that certain group of tabs. You can also assign colors based on their different set of tasks.

3. Desktop PWAs Run on OS Login

With the “Desktop PWAs run on OS login” flag turned on, the PWAs can start their services in the background just after your log into your computer. You don’t need to manually open Microsoft Edge and keep the PWA active to receive notifications.

4. Global Media Controls

One of the best Chrome features is the new global media controls and I am happy that Microsoft has brought the same feature to Edge as well. This makes media controls on MS Edge quite accessible and you can perform operations such as play/pause/change tracks from a single location.

Along with that, it also allows you to create a PiP window from the media control tooltip. After enabling this flag, you will find the toolbar on the top-right corner. As for the flags, you need to enable these two options.

5. Compositor Threaded Scrollbar Scrolling

If you loved scrolling on the classic Edge because of its unique effect then you can get the same experience on Chromium Edge as well. Just enable “Compositor Threaded Scrollbar Scrolling” and “Smooth Scrolling” and you will find the new Edge behaving just like the classic version’s rubber band effect.

6. Heavy Ad Intervention

7. Enable Sharing Page via QR Code

8. Parallel Downloading

Parallel Downloading is a powerful flag on Microsoft Edge that can help you get better speed while downloading files. Basically, with the “Parallel downloading” flag turned on, it will accelerate download speed by breaking the files into smaller chunks, similar to how IDM and other download managers work. If you download heavy files regularly then this is an essential flag to turn on.

9. Sleeping Tabs

There are many users who keep a lot of tabs open and don’t close them even after many days. To save crucial resources on such tabs, Microsoft has brought something called Sleeping Tabs. It automatically puts idle background tabs to sleep to save system resources on your computer.

10. Quieter Notifications

We know how notifications have become almost a nuisance on the web. Almost every website abuses the notification permission and incessantly prompts a dialog box to allow notifications. However, with the “Quieter notification permission prompts” flag turned on, the notification prompts gets blocked completely on Microsoft Edge. How awesome is that?

11. Tab Hover Cards

Tab Hover Cards is a new way to identify and navigate through tabs on Microsoft Edge. It’s especially helpful when you are dealing with lots of tabs. If you enable “Tab Hover Cards” and “Tab Hover Card Images” flags then a preview image of the tab will be shown in the form of a hovercard when you move the cursor on a tab. I am using this feature on my PC and it’s absolutely great for seamless and faster navigation.

12. Pull-to-refresh Gesture

Thankfully, Microsoft has chosen to keep the “Pull-to-refresh gesture” flag on Microsoft Edge. It’s a simple gesture (two-finger swipe down) that works really well for instantly refreshing webpages. You can enable this flag and swipe down with two fingers to refresh the webpage. That’s cool, right?

13. FTP URLs

If MS Edge is throwing an error after entering a local FTP address then this flag will fix the issue. Just open the Flags page on Microsoft Edge and turn on “Enable support for FTP URLs” flag. Now, you can access FTP locations of your smartphone or other devices from Microsoft Edge.
