> Consider the following scenario:
> 1. App "X" has an intent-filter defined that says it can open URLs for "www.example.com".
(e.g., using https://github.com/EddyVerbruggen/Custom-URL-scheme plugin)
> 2. App "X" wants to launch a specific URL on www.example.com in the system browser.
> 3. App "X" uses InAppBrowser plugin and calls {{window.open}} with {{_system}} as the
target.
> Actual:
> Since the app itself has an intent-filter defined for "www.example.com", InAppBrowser
will just re-launch the app with the intent. In some cases, if a default handler is not chosen,
one will get a chooser, however the app will still be listed as the default option.
> Expected:
> The app should be able to launch the URL in the system browser to avoid a circular redirect.
> There is some discussion of this issue on stackoverflow:
> http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18682833/how-to-exclude-a-specific-application-from-action-view-intent
> http://stackoverflow.com/questions/29529027/open-url-in-browser-even-though-my-app-registered-an-intent-filter-for-it
> I think it might be reasonable for InAppBrowser, in {{openExternal}}, to explicitly remove
the current app from the list.
