---- Convince the boss the company should use Firefox

There are still a lot of sites that don't look right or don't work.
This hasn't been my experience. Also, it's not Firefox's fault that these sites don't work properly, it's the bad code used. So it's not like we have to wait for a new version of Firefox that will solve this. Only educating the webmaster is the solution.
Same thing applied with Opera. Nearly always it's out-of-date browser sniffing to blame for non-working sites.
Talking of Opera, it comes with a user agent set to "MSIE 6.0" by default! Presumably they did this because of bad sites. I always switch it to "Opera" myself, and rarely have problems.
I'd say 95% of sites or more work fine in Opera or Firefox. Both browsers have implemented routines to cope with 'old-school' coding methods, rather than display garbage. It seems to be working.
