removing "Set as default browser" from the settings menu #1495

When you already have Brave set as the default browser, you basically have a menu item that is greyed out that's completely useless and taking up space. When you view the settings menu while on a webpage, it's pretty large already, last thing we need is a menu item that is completely useless and taking up space. I personally think we should remove it from the settings page and add it somewhere within the Settings (not the menu).

Steps to reproduce

  1. Install 1.0.91 CR: 73.0.3683.90 and make Brave the default browser

Actual result


Expected result

We shouldn't be including a dead link/UI component in the settings menu.
