The page will be automatically opened at user's first launch after upgrading.
The target page is configured from kinto server.
Note that we can already trigger a what's new notification via switchboard (experiment: whatsnew-notification). However I think we haven't used this in production yet.

Bug 1357356 - Open aurora transition page once user upgrade from aurora to nightly,

https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/135368/#review138420

* Note that we already have code to show a notification with a URL attached for specific versions via Switchboard. Could we use that?
* What's new, One time notifications, end of life messaging - it looks like we want more of those going forward. Is there the opportunity to build something generic?

Someone who starts tomorrow will have no idea what this class is about. Can we find a better name? Or at least add a big javadoc explaining what this is about?
