AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko)
Chrome/91.0.4472.77 Safari/537.36 Chrome-Lighthouse DebugBear

And this one on mobile:

AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko)
Chrome/91.0.4472.77 Mobile Safari/537.36 Chrome-Lighthouse DebugBear

Note that the Chrome version is based on what's specified in Lighthouse, not the actual Chrome version that's used to load the page.
