PuppeteerController

The BrowserController serves two purposes. First, it is the base class that specialized controllers like PuppeteerController or PlaywrightController extend. Second, it defines the public interface of the specialized classes which provide only private methods. Therefore, we do not keep documentation for the specialized classes, because it’s the same for all of them.
