Google Chrome browser allows us to enable experimental web platform features to test functionality that might land in the future version of the browser. Experimental web platform feature allows the developer to do quick sanity of the application by enabling features that might cause issues later in application post the feature actually lands in stable Chrome release.

What motivated me to write this post?

I enabled a few feature flags and forgot about it. Later due to one of the flags, some of the features stopped working - particularly Web Share API. You can read about the entire conversation here
