User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050223 Firefox/1.0.1

The BBB site has an advertisement for MSIE, but really should mention Mozilla or
Firefox.  There are many problems with the "best viewed by attitude", the focus
should be on standards.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Visit the site
Actual Results:  
Showed "Best if viewed with  Microsoft Internet Explorer. Download Internet
Explorer Now!"

Expected Results:  
Should like to Mozilla, Firefox or best viewed with *any* browser.

Felix, I followed all instructions on the bug reporting screen.  If there are special considerations for just 
tech evangelism, then the CGI script should be able to call them up and display them or at least a link 
to them.

There's no "Best viewed" button on this site anymore. Actually they're working around IE with special IE-Stylesheets.
