After the nasty virus thing making lots of my relative's PC die they are thinking about to get a Mac to avoid the virus attack.

I do know they do web banking quite a lot and everyone of them uses different bank. Some use TD, some use RBC, some use CIBC, some use Bank of Montreal, some use Scotia Bank

I am curious which bank's online banking system works on Mac? I know TD works for sure since my brother has a Mac too and he does web banking.

However, I really don't know the rest

I need to know the answer before my relatives ask me because I don't want them to get pissed off when they buy a Mac and find out web banking does work.

Thanks a bunch

I use Safari to access my CIBC accounts with no trouble at all.

All online banking-systems work with the Mac; there's no such thing as a PC-only banking system. It's the type of browser that may not work with their system. In that case, just launch IE (Internet Explorer - pre-installed on all Macs) and bingo, you're good to go.

Bank of Montreal works fine for me, as does accessing my Citibank Mastercard account.

Lars is correct on this one...

I work for a company that develops front end banking systems and everyone develops to an IE 5.0 interface. If Safari isn't working then try IE and it will work.
Verb!!! That's What's Happening!

Royal Bank - Chequeing account, pay all bills, e-mail money transfers, Visa...no problems at all.

ING Direct - Savings account, my fav website for banks, clean and simple and good interest rates. Can transfer to Royal Bank accounts when needed and visa versa.

HSBC - My accounts in England, works great, no problems, although their security is a bit tighter than the other 2 making it more timely to access.

Scotiabank's online backing service works just dandy with Safari (it took a few months, but they finally came around).

If all else fails, using Omniweb authenticating as a PC version of IE works. I have a few suppliers that I can't log into with any Mac browser. Using Omniweb is my only option.
