    In general should I enable this? What are the pros and cons of doing so?

    Entity tags can improve the browser caching of a site, but some don't recommend using them unless you have a particular goal for them. Sometimes browsers don't update frequently enough when etags are used making it hard for publishers to display updated content. It's best to try it out for yourself and see if it works for your site.
