Dev channel update to 82.0.432.3 is live
Hello Insiders, today we’re releasing build 82.0.432.3 to the Dev Channel. As mentioned last week, we’ve got another opportunity coming up tomorrow for you to talk with us: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/edge-engineers-available-to-talk-with-you-on-feb-....

Our most exciting news today is that the edge://surf game from November’s #FindWhatsNext campaign is now available for everyone to play just by going to edge://surf! In addition to being available from the error page that appears when you’re offline, the game now has new modes including time trial, support for other input methods like touch and gamepads, accessibility improvements, high scores, and remastered visuals. Many of these changes are based on your feedback, so check out edge://surf to see what else we included! Please note that this is being rolled out via our experimentation platform, so it may take a little bit to reach everybody.

As for everything else that’s notable and new:

Added features:
  • Added the ability to put the Share button next to the address bar.
  • Added a management policy to disable the Share button.
  • Added the ability to hide the Home button by right-clicking it.
  • Added support for Windows Information Protection.
  • Added a management policy to control the automatic creation of on-premises work or school profiles (profiles with a DOMAIN\NAME format instead of a NAME@COMPANY.COM format).
  • Added extra security to the Payment info Settings page by requiring the OS-level password in order to edit or delete cards.
  • Added support for syncing the “Allow extensions from other stores” setting to other devices.

The edge version is maintained by another maintainer NikRolls. This is his twitter: Nik (@NikRolls) | Twitter
Unfortunately, that is not correct. It was the uBlock Origin version for the "old" Edge and that was abandoned long ago:
Raymond Hill tried to sort that with Microsoft but didn't succeed.
It's a little mess, but the uBlock origin extension for the new Edge is from Raymond but the webpage still mentions Nik Rolls :(

Oh I didn't know that there's a new add-on store for the new edge. Yeah even the new one still mentions Nik Rolls. Weird :unsure:

Asked the question on Wilders in the thread that Raymond Hill visits sometimes:
Hope to get a definitive answer...

But unfortunately nobody answers... (n)
So for the time being (or forever) back to the AdGuard extension that is properly updated on MS Edge an there is no question of ownership.

If you’ve created and using separate profiles for work and personal needs in the new Edge browser, Microsoft is making the Chromium Edge even better for you. New Edge already lets you open links in other profiles from the context menu, it even allows to choose and set a default profile to open external links through Multiple Profile Preferences in Profiles Settings, to manage the content between different profiles, the company recently has added and enabled Automatic Profile Switching setting by default. The setting is already available in the latest Edge Canary 82.0.449.0 and is rolling out to Microsoft Edge Dev as well.
