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.
