Playwright's versioning

It is important to note that Playwright's connect method is tightly version-coupled. Your client version must identically match the library version used in our usage based workers shown above.

Playwright's connectOverCDP doesn't need to match the same playwright version on our usage based workers. This method is backwards/forwards compatible since it communicates directly through CDP, with the caveat to be slightly slower due to having more communication over the devtools protocol.
