Not to jump the gun, but I'm jumping the gun. I want to deploy Firefox 0.9 ASAP to my company, just waiting for the release.

You know what finally convinced my manager to recommend this? Security! So many people were surfing the web with IE, non-business related surfing, and getting spyware and adware and trojans and the like, that one of the steps to remedy it was to take my recommendation and switch everyone to FireFox. Security, THE big issue in IT now, and possibly a driving force for Moz apps if marketed correctly.
