Apparently so has Microsoft...

Have a look at:
http://www.microsoft.com/industry/bank/press/encryptnpr.htm

As Darrel Kindred noted on the Netscape pressrelease,
this one too is fuzzy on the subject if Microsoft will be able
to use 128bit encryption with all sites or only the ones
running on certified banks.
