  1. When Jason Knight mentioned it this weekend @ BarCampBankSeattle I thought that it was going to awesome but realizing that they are releasing it as a Firefox extension makes me less enthused.

    I am a HUGE Firefox fan (my primary browser) but they are playing the long tail approach here as I’m sure the OVERWHELMING browser choice for most bank and credit union customers/members is IE. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was over 95% usage.

  2. Hey, Brad,

    You’re right that to reach a broader market we’ll need to do more than Firefox (and that’s already in the works), but right now, our site has a very significant Firefox audience. We were very mindful of our numbers in planning this release. We promise this won’t be the last step in this process, and that these capabilities will be available to anyone who wants them.

    Thanks,
    Marc Hedlund, Wesabe

  3. @Marc & @Brad …. I would add that it never hurts to get the FF crowd on board, because they are generally more active in networks, and likely to spread the word of mouth.
