I'm not sure I understand the term "default" browser, and  why we need a
"this or that" discussion.

Because to keep those who prefer systems with as few packages as possible happy we currently install one or the other by default, presently you will get firefox on a desktop system unless you choose chromium during the install process then you will get that. The question here is should we reverse that and install chromium unless a user wants firefox. Users can of course continue to choose to have both installed.
