+1 on credit unions. They are accountable to no one other than their
members. Both of the ones I'm in have online banking; never had a
problem with their sites under Linux. There are plenty to chose from and
qualification often is a matter of living in certain zip codes or
working in certain industries.
Given the behaviour of all the big banks before, during and after the
meltdown they deserve nobody's patronage. Dumped BofA during the
meltdown and haven't looked back. The only possible downside is fewer
free ATM choices.
