    On slashdot of all places, I read a story of someone who found the same from Midlands bank, so had switched to the Halifax's IF (Intelligent Finance). Apparently they're one of the last bastions of browser independant online banking sites in the UK. Shitty situation though.

    Perhaps if geeks keep moving to IF, and writing to their banks to let them know why, they'll figure out the problems. Also remember to write to marketing, not to the dev department. That's how to get action on these things.
  • I'm banking with cahoot and it still works just fine with Mozilla thank you very much.

    Given the current offers from various credit card companies to those who want to switch - you could keep your browser and get an interest holiday on what you owe.

    Of course you could always fake the headers - this fixes most such obstacles.

  • I once won an online account with the french subsidiary of Egg, ZeBank. At first they were rather cool and relaxed and offered a number of interesting services (genuinely) for free.

    Then at some point they started to make accounting mistakes on my account. Those were all repaired within legal delays but still, if I hadn't noticed them I'd have been ripped off. Now they've made that one mistake that has put me in trouble and it's going to take me a little while to get out of it, whether I prove them

  • Well, you know my opinion on Egg. The reasons I left them (and the hassle it took to close my account) are too long to go into here (I'll tell you over a pint if you want) but never before have I met such ineptitude and a lack of basic understanding.
