You can't use RWA from a Mac directly because RWA requires ActiveX which is a proprietary MS plug-in which works only with Internet Explorer for Windows. (For the same reason, even on a PC, you can't use RWA with Firefox)

The most common solution is to use Windows on the Mac with VM solution such as Parallels, VMWare Fusion or Oracle VirtualBox .. you can install a fully functional Windows 7 or 8 system and use any windows-only apps such as Internet Explorer.
