Default Submitting DROS via Mac/Apple

Forgive the question as I'm new and fairly unattractive--and I know the DROS packet they send out SAYS you can only submit DROS via Windows/Internet Explorer, but have any of you had any sucess utilizing Google Chrome, Parallels or anything similar? I'm trying to avoid buying a specific windows laptop as we're a Mac household.
Any help is appreciated.

IE is the only thing I have been able to get it to work in, but others might have had better success.

Yeah, I went through the list last night with Chrome, Firefox, SeaMonkey, etc with no luck. A bare bones Dell is about $300 from Best Buy---as opposed to having to go buy Microsoft, then something for my Mac to read it...oh well, it's a write off I guess...

Have you considered using BootCamp and booting into Windows when necessary? You could set it up on an external drive so you don't have to partition your OS X drive.

I believe it uses ActiveX, which unless you can get another browser to use, you will be stuck with IE. I use a virtual machine for this and anything else which is windoze specific.
