I recently signed up with Chase Bank...and immediately found out that their online website doesn't support the Chrome browser (or IE9 for that matter). Has anyone else run into this problem, and if so - have you been able to create some type of a Chrome work-a-around? I'm guessing this would be a major problem for me if I were to purchase a Chromebook.

I have Chrome 12.0.742.100, IE9, and Firefox 4.0.1 installed on my notebook. As of yesterday afternoon...Firefox was the only browser I could use to SETUP my new online Chase account. I checked Chase's website, and found the following notice:

"Chase Browsers
We recommend using Internet Explorer 7.0 or higher, Safari 4.0 or higher, or FireFox 3.5 or higher."

I called their tech support line this morning, and they confirmed that IE9 and Chrome are not supported for using their online website.

Well...it appears the glitch is that I can't SETUP a new Chase account using Chrome (8 digit secure verification code sent to my email); however, as of this morning I am easily able to access my account using Chrome. Very strange as I consider Chrome the most secure browser available.

It doesn't have much to do with security, it sounds like Chase had some "bad" programming on their end. Seems a little irresponsible of whoever maintains the website.

Take a look at the comments for the User-Agent Switcher on the Chrome Web Store. It appears this software isn't actually working...at present.

That is more technical an issue than situational. It is interesting that Firefox would open the webpage whereas Chromebook wouldn't. I would suggest holding your reigns until you were sure the software was working.

My small credit union won't allow me to pay my bill's through ChromeOS. Chrome on the PC works fine. I called there MIS and he said they are working on it because he just bought the Samsung and found it didn't work...

This is why I bank with SMALL places... :)

This could be a case in point because I have never heard of Chrome blocking some of the sites or so forth. I also like to have the 'small places' as a fall back plan.

I set mine up with IE9 a long time ago. Of course I have been using Chrome ever since them with no problem. Once your account is set up you can pretty much use any browser you would like to.

I have no problem using the Chrome browser with Chase Bank. I have Firefox and IE installed but rarely use them. Chrome seems the best fit with Vista.
