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

CIBC worked great with Mozilla for a long time, even back in the M16 days but told visitors that they only supported IE and NS 4.x. I recall when the image handler in Mozilla was changed having to click on some linked images by memory since the real ones weren't rendered properly. There was a problematic time as well when Mozilla adjusted its ssl handling. Several months ago they started doing a redirect when visiting with Mozilla to their home page even though the site worked fine. It's good to see that they're once again allowing site usage based on capability.
