I was wondering what browser people use for on-line banking with a Mac. I can only use netscape in classic and I use Bank of Montreal (mbanx.( I hate that name) but it's a wee bit tempermental. Expl. and Safari wont work at all.

I bank at BoM and have been able to use Netscape 7 and Safari with no problems. Internet Explorer is right out, however.

Royal and Scotia both support Safari.

What is IE? I've forgotten.

I have used netscape 7 and osX 10.2.3 with mbanx and it worked without any problems. I have the same problem you have reported with explorer. Safari does about the same thing.

I use both TD CanadaTrust and ING Direct with Safari and IE, and have never had any problems...

When I use safari to do on-line banking with CIBC, I constantly get this message:
"The page “CIBC Online Banking Sign In” has content of MIME type “”. You do not have a plug-in installed for this MIME type, so this content can not be displayed."
Am I missing something? What is MIME type?

CIBC and TD Canada Trust work fine on MS IE 5.1 on OS9.1

Hello,

No, I don't think it's you, I think it's CIBC. Their site does the same thing to me. Functionality is just fine, it's just a bit of pain to close that box all the time.

I have resorted to using IE specifically for CIBC. It is the content of their page that causes the pop up informing of ...mime... Oddly enough I did not experience it during one of the upgrades to Safari. It occurred in the beginning and now but not the update prior to the current version

Safari works with CIBC PC Banking. But, you get a mime error on every page, indicating a missing plug-in.

I prefer not to click OK, on the message, when each page loads.

CIBC is one of the only sites that I have to use use IE for.
