My Virgin CC went to Wespac, loging in with Firefox on Ubuntu-8.10 and
pressing a Tab called 'Balance sheet' I received this dialog
To access Balance Sheet you will need to be using a Microsoft Internet
Explorer version 5 browser or above, and a Windows based operating

I presume Balance sheet is something to do with a normal bank account.
My MC transactions were OK

Also, I had to agree to Westpacs Terms and Conditions. I pasted them
into Open Office for a total of 35 pages! The mind boggles

I use ANZ for normal banking, they changed their site a few months
back and all works ok in Firefox now. Opera was a failure, it appears
to trigger "two clicks' when hitting the proceed button. The second
click disconnects the session.
