    Did you click 'Report Broken Website' in the help menu?

    My guess is that your bank is engaging in the very bad practice of hard-coding to specific browsers. The site works with Safari. There is no technical reason for it not to work with any other current WebKit-based browser. Chrome should work. Shame on your bank that it does not.

    If it works in Safari and Firefox, is it not definitely a problem with Chrome?

    Santander, being one of the largest banks in the world, it should work really.

    I think Chrome's a bit touchy with SSL certificates that are "mismatched" or not "verified".

    I don't have a login to try, obviously, but it seems to work on Google Chrome 4.0.249.43 in Windows (this is the current beta channel).

    Santander may be a large bank, but that does not mean that the people handling its website don't make stupid decisions. Chrome and Safari are both WebKit-based browsers. Any site that works with Safari should also work with Chrome. To believe otherwise is to necessarily believe that Google made some profoundly dumb decisions to convert working code into non-working code. OTOH, Santander would not be the first company to hard code to specific browsers. Unfortunately, it will not be the last.

    I tried it, it seemed faster than safari 4. Safari 4 crashes on me about 3 times a day.

    I only tried it for a few minutes, but i could not get Oracle applications to open up. It would start to load, and then just stop. Hope they release a final version soon, Safari has gone to hell.

    For me, Chrome does not display the page. Instead, a server-side error message is generated.
