Accessing IDBI Bank account using Google Chrome on openSuSE/Linux

with one comment

I’m writing this because some brilliant developer who designed the IDBI Bank internet banking site does not allow it to be accessed from Firefox or Chrome. I wish he someday grows up and realizes that Internet Explorer is not the only browser and Windows is not the only operating system around. Sigh! Ok let’s proceed now.

I’ve found a way of accessing it using Google Chrome after a number of trial and errors. The good thing is that the hack is really simple.

Just use the following command line to start chrome and you will be able to logon to your IDBI Bank account

 


/opt/google/chrome/google-chrome --enable-plugins %U --user-agent="Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0)"

Instead of having to type this each and every time, you can also permanently add this parameter to the Menu Editor, so that Chrome would every time start with this switch and you’ll be able to access your IDBI Bank account from it.

I have already posted a detailed how to on installing Google Chrome on openSuSE and making changes to the menu editor. It can be found in the below link

  1. I had really cursed IDBI for this issue when I started using the website a couple of months ago. But today I realized that they have fixed it. I can now login using Chrome.. !
