Yes, that is also an option (to do that we have to remove the -n
argument in the am command). But that will pop out a dialog for the
user to select the preferred browser. From an UX perspective that
might not be good, as all of a sudden the user will get an pop up to
select a browser. Currently the code always launches the Android
Native browser.  I added the support to launch chrome browser if it is
present. Else it continues with the normal flow of launching native
browser. I feel that's a better option.
