The bank and some other sites problem came up some years ago. I think the 
conclusion was that the site asked for the java version etc and if it wasn't 
windoze just refused to work with it. I always email the webmaster at site when 
that happens - not that it does any good. I had the problem with flash 
recently - the email was answered saying that they just won't accept anything 
but flash X. Be interesting to see if they accept the new version.
