@Abdelhak Smara The same thing happened here... In the previous version, we had a working sync for our Azure AD identities. With this update, it displays the "sync is not enabled for school or work accounts" message again... Is this intended behavior?

@josh_bodner Excellent, in the last update, there was an error that broke the searching bar, making my search results displayed in Bing instead Google...now it's fixed.
Still waiting until you can add the option to make this as our default browser, so I can get rid of Google Chrome.

The right-click menus over tabs and the tab bar still say 'R eopen closed tab' instead of 'Reopen closed tab'.

@josh_bodner under the new "Read aloud getting better with the cloud," you mention the "Settings & more" menu. When I click the three dots I see "Settings" but not "Settings & more." Am I misunderstanding or missing something? Thanks!

@josh_bodner Something I was reminded of, earlier today, when I'd reported a bug in an extension that's available for both Google Chrome and Firefox, and the Chrome version also works in Edge Dev, installed from the Google Chrome Store. I agreed to check and report back on the hopefully fixed version the developer very quickly produced and put up to both the Firefox and Google Chrome extension stores.
In Firefox, quite reasonably, there is a 'check for updates' to click on in the Firefox Extension page. In Google Chrome, quite weirdly, there is no 'update' control to check for updates for extensions unless you enable 'Developer mode' - for no good reason I can think of, and I can imagine many ordinary users (a) would be wary of enabling something called that, and (b) wouldn't even think that might produce a 'check for updates' button anyway.
I see Edge Dev is following Google Chrome in this at the moment and I had to enable 'Developer Mode' to get an 'update' button for extensions to then get the updated extension I wanted to test (and it was fixed). I really cannot see any reason for or logic in the extension update button being hidden behind 'developer mode'. Could you please just put the extension update check button out in the regular extension page, and not follow Google in this silliness.
