Be aware, too, that even when Amaya does work, it is 
(1) Not a browser you would like to use routinely.
(2) Significantly limited in the MathML it will render.

To my way of thinking, until we have an engine that can render at least
all of the presentation markup of MathML, we have not even got started on
the serious development. It is too hard to implement ? -> MathML
translation if you don't even have something that renders MathML.

But I do understand that porting something to the Mac can be far from easy, and that it is still early days for development in the MathML context, and even for the World Wide Web.  We just have to wait and work on the bits we ourselves can handle.  Thanks for your innterst in math on the Web.
