Thanks for sharing your views.
I've got an update to their reasoning. The java part would only be used on the client, thus the need for java on the client. And the alleged security increase in their FAQ is "using java helps keep your bank session off the computer's memory later", by which I guess they mean browsing history. That, the only reason they have provided, is so false. Even Internet Exploder doesn't save SSL encrypted pages to the history nor in caches by default, and no-one turns that switch on.
And, in the official press release, hidden deep in their site, they tell it's because a Danish company uses it, and that company bought them in Dec. Wow, what a great reason to do so!
I'm torn between my principles and economics. There is a part-ful solution, their XML interface for pda's and mobiles. It doesn't require java, not even after Feb, hopefully not ever. It's small, fast, text-only, but still lets do most important things like moving money around. Opera renders it quite nicely.
There's no such thing as life. Those mean little jocks invented it ;)
