Yes, QUIC speeds up your browser. However, if you value your privacy keep the QUIC flag disabled

Read post #124 below

Suggest not disabling HTTP/3(QUIC). It’s enabled by default in every major browser except Safari, and while it does present tracking opportunities(HTTP/2 also presents some concerns; you shouldn’t disable it either), disabling it only serves to make you more unique as one of the only users on the latest browser version but w/o QUIC enabled.

I have set the flags below and did not encounter website breakage (until now), but as always mileage may vary, so use at your own risk!

I have a bit difficulty in interpreting deterministic in this context, maybe someone with better English understanding could explain

##heavy-ad-privacy-mitigations
Enables privacy mitigations for the heavy ad intervention. Disabling this makes the intervention deterministic. Defaults to enabled.

I read deterministic to be the same as "variable". But, "deterministic of what?" is what I'd like to know. I never really understood G's explanation of this feature. I always found it vague .

Edit: I never bothered to read about it but here you go: Handling Heavy Ad Interventions | Web | Google Developers
Setting chrome://flags/#enable-heavy-ad-intervention to Enabled activates the new behavior, but by default there is some noise and variability added to the thresholds to protect user privacy. Setting chrome://flags/#heavy-ad-privacy-mitigations to Disabled prevents this, meaning the restrictions are applied deterministically, purely according to the limits. This should make debugging and testing easier.
