Obviously this doesn't solve anything but my 'ickle persons account'
with nationwide work fine, although it seems to have some trouble
remembering the details I end up filling in every time I try to access
my online banking. However I did notice in the FAQ it did say that you
needed Internet Explorer.
It seems strange that they should be saying things like this, as IE has
a relatively small market share. Not even safari or firefox was
mentioned. I can understand that they wouldn't support firefox 3 yet, I
guess that is the downside of using software before it's officially
