How to add websites to the exception list of Super-Duper Secure Mode in Microsoft Edge

Recently, Microsoft introduced a new security feature for its Microsoft Edge browser called Super-Duper Secure Mode or SDSM. It basically improves security by disabling the JIT compiler in the V8 JavaScript engine and applying additional security mitigations.

Now, the company has added another feature to the Super-Duper Secure Mode which allows users to add exceptions so that certain selected websites can run without additional security mitigations.

Currently, the exceptions list for SDSM is available only in Edge Canary, version 97.0.1069.0 (or newer). Also, note that SDSM remains hidden behind an experimental flag and off by default. In this step-by-step guide, we will show you how to add a website to the exception list of Super-Duper Secure Mode.
