Stuart wrote in to tell us that the UK bank NatWest have recently upgraded their online banking facilities, allowing Mozilla users to access the service for the first time. In addition, the digital banking features of NatWest's parent, The Royal Bank of Scotland, are also now compatible with Mozilla. See bug 66911 and bug 119134 for details.

NatWest's previous lack of support for Mozilla/Firefox is the primary reason I decided to not bank with them, I also contacted them about it and spoke to one of their staff at length about how he thought it was a problem on my end. For security reasons they were disabling browsers that weren't fit for their site, or so they thought. He wasn't technical at all, so whatever I tried to get across about web standards and browsers not being at fault I think went right over his head. For some reason I also think he thought I was using Netscape 4...

Glad to read that they've finally woken up. :)
