Add browser-serialport dependency for NW.js support via Firmata #1028
I submitted a very similar and related pull request for the Firmata module (firmata/firmata.js#108). If both PRs are merged in, NW.js v0.13 and Johnny-Five would work together right out of the box. The huge gain is that it would no longer be necessary to custom-compile node-serialport for NW.js (which is prohibitively complicated for beginners).
With the small changes I'm suggesting in this PR and the one for Firmata, I was able to successfully use Arduino + browser-serialport + Firmata + Johnny-Five + NW.js. This is an amazingly powerful combination for physical computing and robotics.
According to AppVeyor, my tiny change is not compatible with version 0.12 but is with version 0.10. The

The failure is unrelated, I just re-ran this to get it green (because I knew it would pass on re-run)
