Description

I have this ideea/feature request:

Since onion URLs are hard to pronounce or remember ...
To promote an onion URL, we could create QR codes, that would open a clear web url from TOR official website:

torproject.org/install-and-open?url=somewebsite12345.onion

So after user installs tor, the browser will ask user if he/she would like to visit the given .onion site that initially wanted to access.

Without this integration with browser and tor website, it would not work, we cannot send users directly to .onion sites, most QR (mobile) users will not have tor installed and would get an error.
