I was talking to a member of the PokerStars support team earlier and he confirmed that PokerStars will be (finally) creating a Mac version. Actually, they have a whole team working on bringing PokerStars to the Mac.
We have a team working on the native OSx version. However, this will require some time to be completed.
The wording, “native OS X version”, leads me to believe that the Mac PokerStars will be downloadable, rather then an online web browser client. This is great news because the download versions always run better and have more features then the java web browser poker rooms.
Unfortunately I currently don’t know how long it will take for PokerStars to release the Mac software. However, PokerStars is a great company and I’m confident they will only release it when it’s good and ready.
