Can anyone here recommend good applications that work with Dreamwidth?

I'd like to write posts without using my web browser since I tend to crash/close/abuse my web browser a lot. Recall: I'm a web security researcher, so this is part of my job and not something I can just avoid. I use multiple browsers to offset some of the issues, but I'm still stuck with problems like the fact that you can't ^Z undo in the default dreamwidth posting thing (what is with that, anyhow? Has it been reported as a bug?)

I'm currently using iJournal, but it leaves some to be desired because I can't have multiple posts open at once.

Suggestions for better ways to post that aren't necessarily desktop applications are also welcome!

Edit: On a related note, if you're still looking for dreamwidth codes to try this out, there seem to be a bunch here.

I gather MarsEdit can post here, with some additional settings. Yep. Just posted a test.

I can do that in both the HTML and the Rich text mode. Maybe something to bring up with Support http://www.dreamwidth.org/support/submit ?

My offline posting "system" amounts to keeping blog posts in a git repository and hacking on them with vi. This lets me keep a lot of work-in-progress and share it back & forth between desktop & laptop. When it comes time to post something, I just paste it into Firefox, make some final changes or edits with gvim via It's All Text, and hit the 'post' button.

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but.. ^_^;

There's also Scribefire, the Firefox addon. I think it is available for other browsers too.

There is a list divided by platform on the Wiki.
