Border-box is great, but whenever I have to use 3rd party code all hell breaks lose. You can mix both, but only applying border-box to your own code is tricky and the mental overhead is quite annoying. Even then some minor glitches can occur which you might not even spot in most cases. For example nanoScroller.js exposes Firefox's scrollbars when zooming because there is no way to hide them via CSS and the code to hide them underneath other elements breaks when using border-box.

Not even sure how to handle such problems.
