The Credit Union Of Canberra uses a plain HTML over TLS internet 
banking system. They don't yet use one-time-pad systems, but not many 
banks in Australia are that switched on just yet.

The CUoC was previously (years ago) using a Java applet, which never 
quite worked properly on anything except IE. Eventually (after enough 
complaints?), they switched over to the plain-web banking system we 
have now. It works better, looks nicer, and runs faster than the old 
system. I like it.

The best bit is, it works just as well on any browser that I use - 
Microsoft IE, Netscape 4.7, Mozilla 1.x, Firefox, OmniWeb, Safari and 
even iCab. I haven't tried it in Lynx yet.
