Force networking code to run in the browser process (obsolete)

OBSOLETE: This policy is obsolete and doesn't work after Microsoft Edge 83.

This policy doesn't work because it was only intended to be a short-term mechanism to give enterprises more time to migrate to 3rd party software that doesn't depend on hooking networking APIs. Proxy servers are recommended over LSPs and Win32 API patching.

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

This policy is disabled by default. If enabled, users are open to security issues when the networking process is sandboxed.

Supported on: Microsoft Edge version 78-83, Windows 7 or later
