I logged into my bank tonight and was informed that it wants me to use a new browser.
What a list.
Internet Explorer, which has never met a back door it didn’t leave open; Safari, the walled-garden Mac thingee that rivals IE for security; Firefox, which is okay except for the clunkiness; and AOL (there’s still an AOL browser?).
Since I use the current version of one of the most consistently secure browsers available, I must assume that they are promoting insecurity.
And that they wish to lose a customer.
(Yes, I would change banks over this. Not because of the browser. Because of the stupid.)
Browser upgrade, my anatomy.
I tried clicking the “Feedback” link at the website. It didn’t work in Opera or in (drumroll) Firefox.
Words fail me.
If you are a competent webdesigner, the browser doesn’t matter. What matters is what your website serves up to the browser.
