      Description

      Currently, when a user clicks on an activity that is not implemented in the app, they see a page that explains the functionality isn't available in the app, with a button to open the website in their browser.

      In other parts of the app, there may be links that open in the user's browser, instead of in the app. Feedback from our users tells us that they often aren't clear what's happened in these cases, and are unsure of how to get back to the app. This can lead to confusion when asking for help, as they aren't sure whether they're on the app or the web.

      We would like to propose changing the behaviour of the core-link component so that, if the link doesn't match any link handlers within the app, the user sees an intersitial page before the link opens in their browser. This page would be similar to the activity page described above, or a "you are now leaving this website" page seen on some websites when following an external link. We hope this will help users better understand when they are using the app, and when they are using the web.
