Thanks for the tip @wookiem! That's a very good information here, will save me a lot of RAM actually! But since it is not really a fix, I believe this issue should stay opened until someone figures out if the packager would eventually be able to open the browser from macOS, or if it is maybe the desired behavior not to "force" any browser in case the user actually would want to debug in Parallels? That'd be silly though.
