    I'm new to Mac's and was going to fill out a form on a bank site. The site wouldn't let me because my browser wasn't secure enough. Are they planning on updating the browser to support this kind of encryption?

    What do you guys do when you run into this? Install Microsoft Internet Explorer for Mac's?

    MSIE for Mac is even worse in this regard. Do NOT use it unless you absolutely have to. I recommend Firefox, Camino, or OmniWeb as Mac browser alternatives to Safari.

    That's can't be right at all.

    Which version of OS X are you using, and what browser?

    Go to your browser security preferences, and make sure you've got SSL and TLS enabled.

    If you're using Safari, download Firefox and see if it works.

    No browser is less secure than Internet Explorer.

    Some websites ( including banks ) don't even recognize Safari.

    Go to Safari preferences and select developer menu then you can make the user agent become IE 7 or 8.
