For a while I had a problem with WellsFargo not recognizing Opera 6 as a "secure" browser (this despite the fact that
Opera has far fewer security holes than any version of IE I've ever used). Thankfully they've now fixed it. Guess
security is less about what is actually safe and more about what is convenient to code for.
