There are a couple of flags in Edge Canary that need "upcoming-ui-features" flag to be enabled to have effect but when I search through the flags i can't find it.
Version 18.104.22.168 (Official build) canary (64-bit)
flags that depend on "upcoming-ui-features" flag are:
Omnibox reverse answers Display answers with rows reversed (swapped); except definitions. Has no effect unless the #upcoming-ui-features flag is Enabled. – Mac, Windows
Omnibox tab switch suggestions Enable suggestions for switching to open tabs within the Omnibox. Has no effect unless the #upcoming-ui-features flag is Enabled. – Mac, Windows
Omnibox rich entity suggestions Display entity suggestions using images and an enhanced layout; showing more context and descriptive text about the entity. Has no effect unless the #upcoming-ui-features flag is Enabled. – Mac, Windows

Hello, it seems like this bug/problem report was lost down in post feed but it still exists even in the latest Canary Version 78.0.257.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)
it prevents from using many Edge flags that need the #upcoming-ui-features flag to be enabled first.

Hi @HotCakeX, it took a while but we got to the bottom of this. The three flags you found are ours for sure. The flag that they say they were gated on came in from upstream (Chromium) and has since been removed. The text remained because of a bad merge. We have a bug to clean that up. Thank you again for noticing this and bringing it to our attention! - Elliot

Anytime, and Thank you!
so that means I can go ahead and enable those flags?
because for example when I enable "Omnibox rich entity suggestions", i see no effects on the browser Version 78.0.259.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)
Omnibox rich entity suggestions is supposed to work like this:
it's supposed to display rich autocomplete suggestions when searching for things like celebrity names or movie titles. but it's not doing it.
