Note : The skinning service skinning service for Chromium) has somehow got mixed in with the Wavesor Wave Browser, and they are not the same product. So we have introduced new long name "Chromium Wave Browser" for better classification.

As the “Wave Browser” identity is currently predominantly used to block the Wavesor product –  Now the customers should block the new long name "Chromium Wave Browser", if they want to block the Chromium skins as well.

These applications may get block if the default policy is set to block.
