Question! If you install the IE Tab Add-On for Firefox will that allow the Bank Website to work?
Another +1 for VirtualBox
From what I could see online, Wine and App virtualisation worked fairly well in some cases, but it was a bit hit-and-miss. I need to make this as stable as possible, the person it's for would not be happy if it crashed while they were sorting out a big financial transaction!
Question! If you install the IE Tab Add-On for Firefox will that allow the Bank Website to work?Looks like this add-on is Windows-only as it requires IE to actually be installed on the machine and FF just calls components of it.Requirement: Microsoft Windows + Internet Explorer > 4.0
I've used Parallels, VMWarer & Virtual Box & if all you want to use is just for IE I would jsut stick to VirtaulBox. It's a great product for being free!!

Good idea for testing though, I always liked Browsershots for testing sites if you didn't need it to be interactive.
If it's just IE then it doesn't matter really. Although I would still choose VirtualBox myself. Also VirtualBox was the only VM manager that supported PXE booting at one point. This was the main point for myself. If you could use this feature it may be a deal-breaker for the other alternatives if they don't support it.
I use Firefox to access Lloyds online business banking without any issues at all.
I use virtualbox for pretty much everything non mac (damn you VMware for not making a mac client for VSphere!)

Thanks again everyone. Went with VirtualBox in the end and it worked perfectly (haven't tested LloydsLink personally as I don't have a login, but it's IE so it should work). Very responsive on the Air and fullscreen mode feels almost native.
