Benzworld.org question for mac users

I just got my first mercedes slk 230 amg sport and of course i am checking all the sites for info. so no offense to this awesome site but whenever i go to that benzworld i keep getting the little rainbow wheel of death (hourglass for everyone else) and the website locks up and it keeps happening constantly. So like a deer in the headlights, I keep going there to see if it keeps happening and it does. Is that place not mac friendly? Has anyone had this happen?
Thanks

No siree Bob, NOT time to get a PC!

I just went to Benzworld.org using Safari & Firefox in 10.6.8 Snow Leopard, with noooo problem!

Are you sure you are using .ORG?

There is a video on the home page, I believe, and it may be in one of those annoying Microsoft formats, so perhaps you need to update your WMV player. Click the free download button here (remove the space after http:
