UPDATE! The Register has a follow-up article that names alternative browser saints and sinners.

heh "a brief but interesting article". I was looking for a page 2. I didn't realize that the article was over until I noticed the little (R) symbol.

CIBC in canada is the same as those other banks that it mentions. They don't let anyone who is not using nav 4 or ie 5/6 use their site either, yet they keep asking me to do my banking online. So far banks and computer game companies (the store at nintendo and ea [ea was fixed iirc]) are the only sites that I have had problems with.

My school, UFT, used to say it doesn't support netscape 6 but it allowed you in anyways and never had a problem. I just noticed that they recently removed the warning.
