Comment (by antonela):

 Hey yes!

 Ideally, the user flow should looks like:

 0 - Tor Browser launches the onboarding.
 1 - Once in the Circuit Card, the user clicks at the CTA [Learn More / Try
 it now! / Visit an .onion].
 3 - A New tab opens, and the walkthrough appears.
 4 - User goes through step1, step2, step3.
 5 - User stays on the .onion or gets back to `about:tor` [onboarding

 We discussed two options to run/launch this helper for new features. One
 of them included a fake onion, and we don't want to fake the flow >

 Instead, I made a prototype with a real .onion to show the user flow. I
 think we can use tpo's onion there >

 Remember that I'm following Firefox's one here, so that you may find
 source files somewhere.

 Let me know what do you think and if anything else is needed!
