A note about browser-chrome mochitests

As a tip, Hgweb does not follow file renames in the revision log, so all
you'll see by default is the cset of this file move, e.g.

However, you can see on that page that underneath the timestamp there's a
"base" link, and that will take you to the previous history of that file
before the rename.

Annotate works as expected, and also you can see the full log locally by
using `hg log --follow`
