Is this really kb/s or KB/s? Edge Dev tools - Network Throttling

Honored Contributor



I'm getting mixed results when I set network throttling in Edge Version 84.0.488.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)


I can't be sure if it correctly means kilobits per second (kb/s) or kilobytes per second (KB/s).

when I assume it to be (kb/s) and then multiply my desired download speed by 8 (to get the actual KB/s which is the unit that's used in real world) before entering in Edge, I see on the browser task manager that the tab I'm apply throttling to is exceeding the speed limit by a huge margin.


so I need to be sure if it's just not a typo (kb/s instead of KB/s) and it actually is kilobits per seconds and I have to multiply my number by 8.


is it possible that the network speed that I'm seeing in the browser task manager for a particular tab to also include the cache that browser loads from my computer?
