It's been almost a year now, and despite repeated claims that Safari will be supported at some point, NIS 5 still doesn't offer antiphishing or Safe Web protection for Safari users.
What's worse is that customers on OS X Snow Leopard also have lost Safari toolbar protection if they upgraded their browser to benefit from Apple's security fixes.
Will Safari users be left out in the cold another year, with no Safe Web protection, as Mountain Lion rolls around? It's frustrating that Mac users pay the same price as Windows users, yet our NIS 5 for Mac still has fewer features and more vulnerabilities, compared to NIS 2012 (for Windows).

Well, until Norton decides to support Mac's built in broswer, I will not be purchasing their products. Norton's customer service leaves a lot to be desired. That would be the same as Norton not supporting Internet Explorer in MS Windows.

While I can understand your reservations, it is worth noting that none of our competitors support Safari in their products either. Not a single Internet Security product on the Mac claims to protect Safari 5 on Lion. Not buying our products is certainly within your right, but buying our competitors does not get you protection while using Safari either.
The problem really lies with Apple, since they do not allow extensions in Safari that can perform this kind of protection.
