### User Story
As a user,
when I scan a QR code which represents a URL I should offered the choice to open with status or web browser,
so that I may access the webpage.
[comment]: # (Describe the feature you would like, or briefly summarise the bug and what you did, what you expected to happen, and what actually happens. Sections below)
Currently, the QR code scanner handles universal links, user names and ethereum accounts. This feature proposes expanding the QR code scanner to handle URL's which are not preceded with a universal link.
The reason is currently accessing a Dapp by scanning a QR code is only possible via universal link. This narrows the QR code scanners ability and puts extra load on dapp developers to either print 2 QR codes (one just a URL and one a status universal link).
#### Expected behavior
The expected behavior is that a URL which is not a Dapp universal link is handled the same way a URL is handled when tapped on by a user in chat.
Scan QR code -> pop up requesting to open in status browser or web browser.
#### Actual behavior
Currently, scan QR code returns an error notifying the user the QR code scanner will only open universal links, ENS names or Ethereum account addresses.
* Open Status
* Scan QR code derived from url so www.google.com or https://www.google.com or google.com
* Receive error notification
[comment]: # (Please summarise the solution and provide a task list on what needs to be fixed.)
The solution is for QR code scanner to handle URL's in the same as when a link is tapped in chat.
