Right. As if we already do not have enough phishing happening in this world already.

"... ICICI Bank will soon be present on Facebook. The ICICI Bank page (on the social media website) will include a one-of-its kind 'Your Bank Account' app through which you can access your bank account information while on Facebook," the bank's Executive Director Rajiv Sabharwal said.

Facebook has deprecated the older FBML system and I believe they now use inline frames. So, this would be pretty safe. But even then, it is a very bad idea considering the lack of awareness about phishing amongst the indian web user. ICICI is playing with fire here.

i think the problem is with the voiceovers they are using. the plugin is causing the page to turn blue at my place. this seems to be happening only in the current version of chrome beta.

i think i might know the problem. it might be because of hardware acceleration feature of chrome that might be crashing because of the audio alerts on the icici webpage. i have not tried yet after disabling hardware acceleration on chrome. i would wait for the next beta instead.
