US Bank Chase has decided to stop supporting Opera and Chrome web browsers, implying security issues and low popularity.
Therefore, people who use browsers other than: Internet Explorer 6.0 and higher, Firefox 2.0 and higher or Safari 3.0 and higher (for Mac systems only), may not be able to access Chase web site.
Why are some browsers not supported?
There are two primary reasons—security and popularity. There are dozens of browsers in use today, but not all offer the minimum levels of security that we require while others may not perform well with our site. The security of your accounts and private information is one of our highest priorities and some browsers, especially older versions, are simply higher security risks to use with our site.
Apparently, Chase bank thinks that IE6 does indeed have a required level of security, even though Microsoft itself urges people to upgrade as soon as possible.
Now, where is that facepalm picture, when you need it?
