Does sleep tab function use this flags as well : edge://flags/#intensive-wake-up-throttling

I ask only to know if i continue to enable it or if it's already in enabled state

For God Sake Microsoft when will you listen an replace "Default by it's ACTUAL states"

Hi,
the flag was removed from Edge canary when it went from version 89 to 90
(Version 90.0.778.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit) to be exact)

now Canary is Version 90.0.784.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)
and the flag is still not available.

so i think it's safe to assume that the flag has nothing to do with sleeping tabs.
i remember posting about it when it first appeared in Edge canary. it was way after sleeping tabs was in Edge.

that's another sign that the 2 things are not related.

that flag only stayed in Edge briefly, sleeping tabs is still working fine in Edge canary, without that flag.

about the enabled/disabled state of flags, please just send more feedbacks through Edge feedback button. every time i ask developers they say if more people request it, they'll implement it..

i have asked it through feedback already, an i push other to do it, (i have seen many dev have asked it on chromium thread too) but neither Google or Microsoft seem interested in this feature)
