Hosts to Open In the Alternative Browser

Allows you to specify a list of host domain names to be opened in the Alternative browser.

If the policy is enabled you have to provide a list of filters which will trigger the transition to the alternative browser. Every entry should be one of the following four types:

Host-name part: Either complete domain names like "" should be specified or parts of them like "" or even "example". Wildcards are not supported yet.
URL prefix: Only proper URL prefixes are matched complete with protocol and port if needed. E.g. "" or "".
Negative entry: Starts with "!" and continues as host-name part or URL prefix as described above. Negative entries are always opened in Chrome. E.g. "!" or "!file:///c:/localapp/".
Wildcard entry: Contains only a single "*" character. Matches any URL. Intended to be used together with negative entries, if most URLs should be open in the alternative browser and only a small selection of URLs should be opened in Chrome.

Negative entries have higher priorities than positive entries which allows to whitelist large portions of a domain while saving smaller sections to be opened in Chrome.
The wildcard entry if present is applied only after all other rules have been checked.

The following protocols are monitored for redirecting: http:, https:.

If not specified or left empty - no transition to the alternative browser will be triggered.

Supported on: Microsoft Windows XP SP2 or later
