Websites to open in alternative browser

This policy controls the list of websites to open in an alternative browser.

Note that elements can also be added to this list through the BrowserSwitcherUseIeSitelist and BrowserSwitcherExternalSitelistUrl policies.

When this policy is left unset, no websites are added to the list.

When this policy is set, each item is treated as a rule for something to open in an alternative browser. Google Chrome uses those rules when choosing if a URL should open in an alternative browser.

When the Internet Explorer add-in is present and enabled, Internet Explorer switches back to Google Chrome when the rules do not match.

If rules contradict eachother, Google Chrome uses the most specific rule.

Example value:

ie.com
!open-in-chrome.ie.com
foobar.com/ie-only/

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
