Radio Userland as Microsoft Lock-In

I’m playing around with Mozilla 1.0, and the Multizilla tabbed interface. I like it a lot. It’s nice to finally see some innovation in the browser interface, which has been frozen for years. Mozilla still has its quirks, and I find myself missing some familiar ways of doing things in Internet Explorer, but none of these limitations are major. Except for one thing.

I use Radio Userland to manage this blog, and the text-editing tool appears to use IE-specific Javascript code. It simply doesn’t show up in Mozilla. I can’t even see the radio boxes to switch over to “source” mode and edit the HTML directly. In other words, I can’t use Mozilla. Userland is a Microsoft-only shop. I understand the business need to develop for the dominant application — after all, Userland is a small company. But this means I need to choose between the blogging tool I like and the browser I like. I’m not sure which one I’ll pick.

Update: It’s not as bad as I thought. I can still post to Radio in HTML mode using Mozilla. I thought it was in WYSIWYG mode without a WYSIWYG editor, so that I couldn’t post at all. As noted in the comments, the WYSIWYG editor is a built-in feature of Internet Explorer, but there are efforts afoot to create something similar that is cross-platform.
