Avira Free Mac Security

I don't use a Mac but I DO use Avira Free 2012. They have just released a Mac version of their Avira Free and it is available from this direct download from the Avira Website. Click the GREEN Download Avira Free Mac Security button from the link below. You will receive the executable file to install on your Mac computer.

I truly cannot say one way or another. I don't use a Mac so I truly have no knowledge on that.
On Windows PC's both are highly respected and considered excellent, top of the line programs, consistently scoring higher than other free av programs on independent testing.
So I would imagine that the same excellence can be expected from either program on Mac's also.
I am an Avira user and have been for many years. I am also a regular reader, occasional poster on their forum and when I saw this information I felt it important enough to post it here.
