Does Project for web supports all task dependencies like "Finish to Finish", "Start to Start", lead, lag, etc.

I am able to link only FS.

Great feature team! Especially the ability to add multiple links and files, very nice. One question; where will a file be stored if I upload it from my device, and no M365 group has yet been connected? 
For the rest, would love to see the FtF, StS and SF depencies added, as well as lag on these dependencies. And the option to add individual resources to the team, besides members from the connected M365 group.

Your question seem to be a non-issue as that specific choice is not available until you connect a M365 Group, the only choice you have is to link a URL

Awesome work from all of you keep going on but have a small doubt is this useful to medium scale companies are non profitable companies. If this works for those people it will be very useful.

It is good to see how you are improving it. It would be wonderful a synchronization with planner /to-do to not rework the assignment of tasks or improve the comments section to be able to tag users and get the notification by mail.
