Force networking code to run in the browser process

This policy forces networking code to run in the browser process.

This policy is disabled by default, and if enabled, leaves users open to the security issues once the networking process is sandboxed.

This policy is intended to give enterprises a chance to migrate to 3rd party software that does not depend on hooking the networking APIs. Proxy servers are recommended over LSPs and Win32 API patching.

If this policy is not set, networking code will run out of the browser process by default.

This policy will be removed in Google Chrome version 84.

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