tel: link handler for desktop

I noticed that desktop platforms have no UI for handling phone number links. In fact, some don't even have URL handlers for them by default. To help fix this, I'm making a PWA that registers a tel: URL handler (only works in Chromium-based desktop browsers and Firefox) and shows the phone number when such a link is clicked. I'm going to improve the UI and add feature detection, don't worry. :) If you'd like to contribute, just ask.
