This SharePoint tutorial explains, how to debug a SharePoint hosted add-in or provider-hosted add-in in a different browser in visual studio 2015. Whenever you develop any solution and try to debug the solution, it will open in the default browser (mostly set IE). But you might need to debug in a different browser.

Recently we were developing a provider-hosted add-in and we wanted to debug it into a different browser. By default, it was opening in Internet Explorer.

In a provider-hosted add-in, there will be two projects one is your add-in project and another one is the Asp.Net project (maybe an asp.net MVC project or ”web form project depending on your selection while creating the provider-hosted add-in).

Here select the add-project and go to properties (F4), you can see “Start Action” property. In this property, you can see the browser available. Select the browser and then when you click on F5 or Debug start button, it will take the selected browser. See fig below:
