Websites that should never trigger a browser switch.

This policy controls the list of websites that will never cause a browser switch.

Note that elements can also be added to this list through the BrowserSwitcherExternalGreylistUrl policy.

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, similar to the BrowserSwitcherUrlList policy. However, the logic is reversed: rules that match will not open an alternative browser.

Unlike BrowserSwitcherUrlList, rules apply to both directions. That is, when the Internet Explorer add-in is present and enabled, it also controls whether Internet Explorer should open these URLs in Google Chrome.

Example value:

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