Not to stir up the old PC vs. Mac pot, but as a Windows user, the Mac seems to be the safer neighborhood to walk around the Internet.
That's the reason I got a used mid-2009 Macbook. That's not "bigotry", just common sense.
That is a hotly debated issue for some. I am sure that if the debate got rolling, it would be lively as to whether the Mac OS or Windows is more secure.
I cannot say which is technically more secure. What I can say is that there are a heck of lot less forms of malware out there for Macs, which to me is a one small reason why I like Macs better. Whether that is because Macs might be more secure (as I said, debatable) or because there are so many fewer of them that there is less "bang for the buck" for malware writers to target Macs or some other reason doe not matter to me. What ever the reason, there are fewer threats out there for Macs.
But, that is changing slowly.
And even knowing that, I have have ALWAYS run anti-virus software on my Macs (and of course, my Windows machines)…all the way back to the days before Mac OS X when Mac viruses were rather prevalent.
