Wells Fargo - The internet like it's 1899.

By: jerry | 02/02/2006

Internet banking is wonderful. Online bill pay is a godsend. Wells Fargo Financial Bank, unfortunately, just isn't keeping up. Not even close. I tried to access their bill pay site this morning and found this delightful bit of news (emphasis is mine):

We support the following browsers. If your browser does not meet Wells Fargo's security standards, please follow the download instructions below. Otherwise, your experience may vary, or you may not be able to sign on to Wells Fargo Financial Bank Online Payment System. If you have the required minimum browser version, it must also have at least 128-bit encryption. This is a very strong, secure form of encryption. This will allow you to make your payments online securely. Note: We strongly recommend that your computer be running one of the operating systems listed below, and be connected to the internet using one of the browser versions indicated. Netscape® 6.XX and 7.XX * Netscape Navigator/Communicator Upgrade for Windows * Netscape Upgrade for Macintosh Microsoft® Internet Explorer (MSIE) 5.X - 6.XX * MSIE Upgrade for Windows * MSIE Upgrade for Macintosh America Online® 4.0 - AOL 8.0 for Windows; use with MSIE 5.X - 6.0 * America Online Browser Upgrade For your protection, Wells Fargo does not support beta versions of browsers. Under normal circumstances, Wells Fargo will support the final version of a browser shortly after the release date. Wells Fargo regularly monitors and tests browsers to ensure the highest security standards for our customers.

Huh. I'm pretty sure Safari 2, Firefox 1.5 and Opera 8.5 are all out of beta, and have had non-beta versions for quite some time now. So what exactly are "normal circumstances?"
