Billeo Inc. of Santa Clara, Calif., said Wednesday that it has developed a version of its online bill payment software for Apple Inc.'s Macintosh personal computers.

Billeo offers a plug-in application for Web browsers that stores payment information and records, allowing users to make faster online purchases and keep a digital record of any transactions they make through the browser.

The tool also includes bill payment reminders, password management features, directories of online merchants and search functions to help users find specific transaction details.

Murali Subbarao, Billeo's founder and chief executive officer, said his company decided to develop the Macintosh version in response to "overwhelming demand from the Mac community for the Billeo product."

The software works with the Firefox browser.
