I loved the firefox extention Super Drag and Go; unfortunately it is no longer being developed. Instead I found its replacement which does the job for me. Its called QuickDrag and allows me to do the following three jobs that I use often.
- select an URL ( e.g. https://awhan.wordpress.com ) and drag and drop it to load it in a new tab !!!
- select a text and drag and drop it to start a search in a new tab
- drag and drop images to download them
well that’s it what I use it for and I like it a lot 😀
