Make Office 365 on Demand work for Mac

We all know that M$ Office 2013 will take at least a year to be released on Mac. However, there is an "on Demand" version out there that streams the 2013 version over the internet, unfortunately only for PCs with Internet Explorer. Now here is my question. How can I make this work on Mac without a workaround like parallels desktop? It can't be that hard to make your Mac-Browser pretend that it is an Internet Explorer so that one can use Office 2013 on demand, right? Does anybody have an idea how we could make it work on Mac?

Not trying to be a smart a$$, but I think the main Office 365 page says it's for both PC and Mac. You shouldn't need to do anything...? I'm not sure if some features are missing/crippled vs. PC, but it looks the same for either one.

If not, try using Chrome or FF?

OP is asking about Office on Demand. From the link in the OP:
Quote:
As long as you’re connected to the internet from a PC running Windows 7 or later, you can use Office on Demand to create documents or to keep working on documents you’ve saved to SkyDrive.
I couldn't find more specific details on system requirements after a quick look.

While it is office 2013 via streaming in a browser....it requires a browser plugin hence why it requires windows 7 or above. Take a look here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-001/o...in=HA102840202
