Buggy Banks

I’ve just filled in the application form for an internet bank account. It features as a Best Buy in various published tables (e.g. here and here) and it’s from an Icelandic bank – to which anyone familiar with the etymology of WebÞing will realise I am inclined to be well-disposed.

Well, I got through most of the process, including all the sensitive bits, when I reached a form that wouldn’t submit. A look at the source revealed a pure-javascript submission. A look at firefox’s error console showed a fatal error. Grrr:-(

If that had happened earlier, I’d have just abandoned the application. But since it was after the important bits, I tried submitting a copy of the page modified to remove the buggy script. That worked, and enabled me to complete the process.

Email sent, with a bug report and a suggestion about getting competent developers.

Bah, Humbug.
