are there any banks that let you test drive their internet banking before you get an account with them?

Now that would be excellent! The tragic thing is that I bet none of them would even consider it, even though by doing that they could a) get more customers and b) get tons of free testing done for them.

I suspect the objection would be "security", ie stopping teh evil phishers finding out what their website looks like (because phishers can't get bank accounts, and don't know people who can get bank accounts).

Well, surely only in the hypothetical case where the online barking doesn't suck? Perhaps they all know that if they let any prospective customer see their web service before it's too late to back out...

So far (out of two...), S|E|B had, by far, the best internet banking I've used. Unfortunately, they don't provide any sort of sane banking in the UK.

I have to keep reminding myself that businesses are not interested in getting things right, providing a good service, etc. :-(
