Here is the the score of browsers to see how much of HTML5 technologies and features they support.
In order of highest to lowest.
Edge insider Canary Version 79.0.286.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit) Highest Score
Google Chrome Canary Version 79.0.3924.0 (Official Build) canary (64-bit)
FireFox version 71.0a1 (2019-09-26) (64-bit)
Edge classic (EdgeHTML)
Microsoft EdgeHTML 18.18990
Microsoft Edge 44.18990.1.0
Internet explorer 11 version 11.1.18990
Internet Explorer 11 (latest version) obviously has the worst score, but it's the only browser that can manage to get the perfect 100/100 score from Acid3 test among all these browsers tested. the rest of the browsers can only get 97/100.
By the way, Acid3 is an old test.
Comment down below what you think. I for one am hella impressed by Microsoft Edge insider's score!

So what caused the Edge insider Canary to get the score of 543 and Not the Perfect score of 555?
here is the list of features and HTML5 capabilities that are not supported (as stated by that website: https://html5test.com/ ) in the browser.
there are however other things that the website is failing to detect (thus marking them as unsupported) even though I enabled them using flags, such as

Very helpful website to find out which technology is supported in which browsers
the thing is, Edge classic supports a set of technologies that the new Edge doesn't. on the other hand, the new Edge supports some technologies that the Edge classic doesn't. so if you merge them together you'll create the best of the both worlds browser ^^

@HotCakeX I'm using the Edge Dev 80.0.3965.0 but the score I get is really low, 477/555 do you know why?
I also get a very low result in the Security and Payment parts.

Okay I just did another test right now
Windows 10 x64 insider fast ring build 19033
Edge insider Version 80.0.346.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)
turning on "Experimental Web Platform features" flag boosts the score by 5 points
you know what's the worst part about that website? it's too stupid that it can't tell the difference between Google Chrome and Edge insider browser.
Chrome dev. heh!
Edge insider has been around for 8 months at least but they don't recognize it yet
