I love the smell of righteous indignation in the morning

Link: http://www.raboplus.co.nz/faq/security_technology/technology.asp

Looks like quite a cool piece of technology, right? I'd certainly say so. I was even tempted to sign up with them, partly for the "geek toy" factor but also because their interest rates are very competitive.
Then Cam pointed out this nasty little gem: Our website has been built for Internet Explorer version 5 and higher.

So I wrote them a little note:

I was very disappointed to see that you only list Microsoft Internet Explorer as a supported browser. As a user of FreeBSD I do not have any chance of installing or using IE, so a site that is not browser-agnostic is of little use to me.

Also, with IE's very bad rap in the security department it's extremely disturbing to see that a company that seems to be highly focused on security doesn't advise (or encourage) users to make use of any of the excellent alternatives such as Firefox or Opera.

It will be interesting to see what, if any, response I garner.

CameronThat section has been updated since Matt emailed them.

In fact, as a good blogger, Matt should've commented that he got a reply stating they supported Firefox :P

Shocking as it may be, I think, and sometimes those thoughts are almost worthy of public contemplation. So, here are those some thoughts, with no guarantees as to their validity, worth, or utility to the cosmos. All thoughts are my own, representing only my thoughts, opinions and positions, unless explicitly otherwise stated. This blog is not an official or unofficial outlet for any company or government body, or for person other than myself.
