The trade login feature for SBICAP Securities - http://www.sbicapsec.com/ works only on Internet Explorer. I don't have Internet Explorer. Neither do I want to use it. Their customer support executive has mentioned that they don't support any other browser. Also, they require Java runtime. Is there a pragmatic method to deal with them?

I remember using ies4linux few years ago. I'll have to check whether I have A VALID EULA FOR ANY "OS PRODUCT" (MICROSOFT WINDOWS 95, MICROSOFT WINDOWS 98, MICROSOFT WINDOWS NT WORKSTATION 4.0, MICROSOFT WINDOWS NT SERVER 4.0, MICROSOFT WINDOWS NT SERVER, ENTERPRISE EDITION 4.0 OR MICROSOFT WINDOWS NT SERVER 4.0, TERMINAL SERVER EDITION).

The issue I have with SBICAP Securities is, they are forcing their customers to use a proprietary software.
 
It seems to happen mostly with these shitty banking websites. Why're they IE-only? ActiveX?
 
There are three possible reasons I can think of:
1. Whoever is responsible for the application is too lazy to test the application in other browsers
2. They are clueless about technical standards and browser market share. "Nobody uses anything other than Internet Explorer. Or everyone will have access to Internet Explorer"
3. M$ directly or indirectly influenced the decision
