This swaps out the regular fetch for node-fetch when using electron. This mitigates the problem of #1234 where the electron app actually has pretty strict CORS and blocks most headers from being accessed by default.

This also just upgrades to electron version 3.0.6 for funsies. It doesn't appear to break anything so might as well stay up to date :)

Note that the electron-fetch uses the chrome native networking libs so it purports some benefits with proxies and some other stuff, but it is not available in the browser via electronRequire('electron').net so it would probably need some IPC to make work.
