Hello Insiders, today we’re releasing build 82.0.425.3 to the Dev Channel. As anticipated last week, this is the first build for major version 82. Because this is the first Dev Channel build in a new version, we don’t have too much new to talk about, although we do have another opportunity for you to talk to us next week. See https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/edge-engineers-available-to-talk-with-you-on-feb-... for the details!
Additionally, we made some new blog posts about some of the performance improvements we’ve been working on: https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2020/02/13/performance-optimizations-edge-81/, and some of the Mac manageability improvements we’ve been making: https://blogs.windows.com/msedgedev/2020/02/20/edge-profiles-jamf-applications-custom-settings/. Also, one of our engineers made a detailed post about how the ability to choose a default profile to open links in works: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/select-a-default-profile-to-open-external-links-i.... And as some users have noticed, we’ve begun rolling out Extension sync in Canary, so look for that soon in Dev! Now, for what’s new:
We plan on updating Beta to major version 81 this week thanks to all your testing and feedback. We couldn’t have done it without you!

The new edge seems to be improving with each new build, but at least for me I'm still not happy with the video autoplay feature. The site where it fares the worst so far at least for me is here: https://www.yahoo.com/ , yahoo is now a division of verizon, all I can say is some of their web developer's must know something that the developer's of edge must not know because even though I have the video autoplay setting set to 'block' it doesn't seem to matter when it comes to yahoo.com .

@josh_bodner (Tried to find the post mentioning the remove duplicate favourites tool, couldn't. )
After using the fav clean-up tool on *dev* I see more duplicates on *live* channel. It was suppose to remove them, not add more!? Also: I pressed UNDO on my *dev* device, but it would seem that it still went ahead with the changes. The latter should be fixed, and fast :)
Did anyone else try it and hit "undo" instead of the "OK" button?
