Default online qbanks- do they work with a mac?

Hi guys!

I've read that some qbanks looks similar to FRED. No I am wondering, since FRED doesn't work for Mac, does anyone have any experience doing online qbanks (like Kaplan, UW, Gunnertraining, ...) on a mac? I guess they should work, but just to be safe...
I don't want to be in for a bad surprise once i sign up!

Also, do I need a fast internet connection for that?

Thanks a lot!
