Visual Studio 2022 17.6–Http Endpoint explorer

I occasionally switch to Jetbrains Rider and Visual Studio Code, but my favorite IDE is and remains Visual Studio(especially with the Github Copilot integration).  With the 17.6 release a new feature was introduced; the Endpoints explorer.

To fix it, you need to go the network settings of your browser, there are available at: chrome://net-internals/#hsts edge://net-internals/#hsts brave://net-internals/#hsts Enter ‘localhost’ in the domain textbox under the Delete domain security policies section and hit Delete . That should do the trick…
