FWIW tho it may not help you, that's one reason I've been impressed with
Bank of America. I do all my banking and billpay online, and while it's
occasionally obvious that the site wasn't designed expressly for Konqueror
(particularly konqueror with a light text on dark background default
configuration, and with images turned off by default), everything I need
to do works. I have scripting and cookies turned on for the site, of
course, but don't have Java or Flash-type plugins installed, as I don't
run slaveryware. The site works fine without slaveryware plugins,
however, and no, I don't have to configure Konqueror to report its
useragent as something else to get it to work, either. =8^)
The minor niggles are mostly as I mentioned due to my choice of light text
on dark and the fact that I normally don't have images turned on.
Clicking the load images button, and/or selecting the text to make it
viewable, cures those problems. The only other problem is that the view
ebill details feature often doesn't work quite right. I can see the
amount due and the date as supplied by BofA, but the framing of the bill
detail (from the third party utility or whatever) often doesn't work.
However, it produces an error that lists the URL, which can then be
selected and pasted into another browser window to view the bill detail,
A bonus is that BofA was one of the companies (along with AutoZone, which
I can proudly say I also shop at, and DaimlerChrysler) on the short list
of SCO anti-Linux targets. Thus, we know BofA supports and uses free
software in its internal operations as well, and I can feel good about
supporting BofA for that, too. =8^) Here's the google search:
