Description

Data Source Manager --> Vector --> Database, Select PostgreSQL --> New
Could be nice to have, when applicable, the dialog look like when using e.g. Data Source Manager --> PostgreSQL --> New ie, have the Username and password in the authentication tabs with possibility to save both.

The Vector tab is in fact the OGR provider that can connect to several data databases (postgis included), on the other hand the postgis provider implemented in QGIS is more feature rich and I'd be in favour of removing the option to connect to postgis via OGR from the Vector dialog instead of having two different ways to add a postgis layer, that is just confusing for the user.
