Bug Description

Evergreen 3.0.1

Running 'grunt all' (or 'grunt test') fails from JS error:

ReferenceError: Can't find variable: BroadcastChannel

BroadcastChannel is a relatively new object supported by Chrome and FF, but not yet supported in PhantomJS, at least not the version we're running.

Patch en route to avoid instantiating such an object when it does not exist so unit tests can proceed.
