Always show the version of Selenium & Browser Driver

Suggestion

Add a field to the customer-facing metadata tab showing the provided version of Selenium Server and any browser specific Driver.

Rationale

Sauce Labs provides different Selenium and driver versions depending on the selected platform.  Unfortunately, this isn't presented in the customer facing metadata, nor is it always displayed in the logs.  This makes it harder to knowingly avoid problematic versions and diagnose when a version is causing issues.

    This enhancement would be useful for us a few weeks ago when we were debugging failures on Sauce. Our tests were passing locally since we pinned the Selenium WebDriver to 2.46.0. Sauce defaults to 2.48.0 when you do not specify the version.  We discovered a bug with the Selenium WebDriver 2.48.0 version.
